I've mentioned before that I'm from New York, and spent much of childhood around the WTC. The buildings opened the same year I was born; I can't imagine NY without them. I was in Boston on 9/11; my brother lived about a 1/2 mile from Ground Zero. He was volunteering the next day. He is not white, and he has a name instantly recognizable as being that of a Muslim. People didn't care, they came together in tragedy. The farther away you get from that point, the more it's about revenge, and less about anger and justice.
