In the crunch, what really matters

As we all know, Monday will be the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I will probably have more to say later about the milestone, but meanwhile, this column by Peggy Noonan, which appeared in Thursday's edition of The Wall Street Journal, is well worth reading. We often lose sight of what really matters in life, but for the thousands who perished that day, it became crystal-clear to them in their final moments, before the planes hit or the towers came crashing down.

This was a touching article. Up here in Scandinavia the anniversary of the 9/11 was discussed briefly in the news, but not very thoroughly, I'm afraid. I thought a lot about it, though, and observed a one-minute silence of my own in memory of those killed.
