Seven years later

September 9, 2008

Let’s just savor the moment:

In a moment of bipartisan unity, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama will come together at Ground Zero in New York City on Thursday to commemorate the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The two campaigns issued a rare joint statement on Saturday announcing the plans of the Republican and Democratic rivals. They also will appear together at a forum later that day at Columbia University.

“All of us came together on 9/11 – not as Democrats or Republicans – but as Americans,” the candidates said in their statement.

It was a remarkable time to live through in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. We really were “one nation, indivisible” there for awhile.
