We forget that events such as these have happened MANY times throughout the world .. Rome, Vienna, Madrid, Glasgow immediately come to mind. Yet it remains shocking as it is "over there", not here.
As someone who is from 'over there' I am very thankful that things are not what they are in your 'over here'.

There were many instances of terror for many years before 9/11, and there have been since. Fortunately reactions measured risk for the most part. There were advancements in security without taking things too far. The children of Europe of the 1970's and 1980's grew up with bombings and acts of violence and terrorism (as do people all over the world)

The world didn't change on 9/11. It was a horrible act, and the loss of life should not be forgotten nor diminished, but using 9/11 as an excuse isn't right either. Look at VM-RHD's signature to gain some perspective.

I don't want to live my life trembling in fear of something that is inevitable.
