September 10, 2004

Tomorrow marks the third anniversary since the
day of evil barbarity that killed 3,000 of our mothers, fathers, brothers,
sisters and friends. As a fourth year evening student, September 2001
was my first semester in law school, and despite
the shock, the sadness, and then burning anger,
we pushed on in our studies with the knowledge
that what separates barbarism from civilization is the
just rule of law forged in a representative accountable
government. As we pause this Sept. 11th to mark
the toll of that terrible day and to reflect on the U.S.'s
ongoing war against fanatic Islamoterrorism, it's perhaps useful to reflect
on Winston Churchill's famous speech that "[t]his is not the end. It is not
even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
