Ten years ago today the World Trade Center was bombed by terrorists who hoped to bring the Towers down. Looking back on it, we never really realized it for what it was: a declaration of war. Pretty easy to see now, unfortunately.
Among the many things that were lost on 9/11 was the memorial to the six people who were killed on February 26, 1993. The artist who designed that memorial writes about it here. I must say, for all of the stories that are supposed to commemorate those six people, the only article I could find that actually mentioned their names is this one, written during the trial of bomber Ramzi Yousef. That's just wrong. Let us never forget Monica Smith, Wilfredo Mercado, Steven Knapp, William Macko, Robert Kirkpatrick, and John DiGiovanni. May they rest in peace.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 26, 2003 to National news | TrackBack
