How 9/11 Changed My Life

My mate had called me into the kitchen to see something unusual on the TV. A plane had hit the WTC. I said that was rather odd (I’m an aerospace engineer) something must be terribly wrong with either the aircraft or the air traffic control system (I had worked on that). Then at 13:03:07z – 4 seconds before 2nd plane hit – watching the plane go in I said to my mate: ”This means war.”

When the Libertarian Party went all pacifist on me post 9/11, I joined with the Libertarian Republicans and never looked back. But I'm glad to be with the hawks of the regular Republican Party rather be with the libertarian doves.
