To the Editor:

Well done. I enjoyed John K. Teahen Jr.’s Sept. 24 column that compared Pearl Harbor and Sept. 11, 2001 (“Sept. 11: Another date that will live in infamy”).

Our kids will be better prepared, but, oh, what a shame that these complacency corrections must happen to remind each generation that being an American is a luxury to be protected and never taken for granted.

Once again, we will be better for it, but what a price to pay.
