It’s been almost 16 years since that horrific Tuesday morning when the world watched New York’s skyline change forever. Sixteen years since fundamental changes happened. Sixteen years since the first major attack on US soil since Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor in WWII. Sixteen years since the start of two different wars plus numerous other small armed conflicts. Sixteen years since my complete unawareness of this world politics ended. A few months ago, I made the long trip to New York City. I wanted to pay my respects and visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
