Since 9/11, the TSA has made airport security stricter than we've ever seen - for good reason. Now, a few airports are going back to the way things used to be and changing who's allowed through security.
SUNY Broome Community College held a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony today, including a very nice speech by President Kevin Drumm, some bagpipe music, and lowering the campus flag to half mast. It was solemn, thought-provoking, and heart felt.
Those of us old enough at the time to follow the news in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks will remember the haunting photo of the woman wearing a business suit and pearls; covered head to foot in white dust as she held her hands in front of her trying to make her way out of the World Trade Center's North.
Sadly, not a lot of things that happen in life surprise me anymore. But whenever I hear of someone trying to exploit September 11th, a day that almost 3,000 people lost their lives, not to mention the thousands as a result since, I'm at a complete loss for words.
