After 9/11 I was overcome with guilt because I hadn't paid enough attention to my own country in the years running up to the attack. I vowed to pay close attention from then on. What I have seen since has taught me that no matter how well a democracy might work within a nation, it can be fully as deadly as tyranny when acting abroad.
God forgive us. God save us all.
