Peter Brown's Sept. 24 column ("Industry's job in time of horror: We must carry on") put a very fresh perspective on our recent tragedy. I had not thought out the impact that Timothy McVeigh's actions may have had on those inclined toward terrorism within the United States.
Certainly, Brown is right, McVeigh's actions set a new level of unacceptable norms for those individuals to judge themselves. We must hope this recent tragedy has the same effect on international terrorists.
I only hope that what bin Laden has perpetuated can be put back in the bottle.
If you are ever in Oklahoma City, you would find the Oklahoma Memorial fascinating. While designed to heal the affected of Oklahoma, it has grown to be an educator on global terrorism.
What those events have encouraged me to do is look inward. While my immediate thoughts were "How can I help?" I quickly realized I was not equipped or skilled to try to help those in New York.
I could not have flown there if I wanted to help. But what I could do was focus on my work, family and friends.
We must carry on - great article and great perspective.
