Never Forgive, Never Forget, Never Excuse

8 years.  Today is the day.  The best thing that you can do today is remember.  Remember all of it, because the pain of it has to be remembered lest it be allowed again.  The other best thing you can do, no matter where you are, no matter what country you are a citizen of, thank those that defend your country.  And no, they can't all be SEALS, SAS, GSG-9 or the various special forces around the world but that doesn't matter, because they have all taken up the burden and responsibility to defend their homes and that makes them special, because they all do a job that has to be done.

You will never hear it on the news, but we know why there have been no successful attacks since that day.  Because our defenders have done their jobs well.  And though fame and glory should be theirs, if we cannot give them that, we can at least give them our thanks and our prayers.

List of things to read and watch, to ensure we do not forget.
