Much has been said...and written...about the 10th anniversary of the attack on our nation on September 11, 2001. Along with most of our readers, I remember vividly the announcement that planes were being flown into the twin towers, and the horrifying images that followed.
As Newsweek has chronicled, our nation has journeyed through fear, grief, revenge, and resilience.
In spite of Ocracoke's geography and physical isolation from the mainland, we were as deeply troubled by the terrorist attacks as other citizens in this country. And we hope that, along with residents of New York and many other cities, towns, and villages across the United States, we can continue to be a model of how to live as a community...with respect, empathy, and cooperation...and hope that our examples will help reshape our worldwide community.
