Yes, We Will Look

""Look teacher," a child cried during a school evacuation as the towers were becoming pyres. "The birds are on fire." The infant was rationalizing the sight of human beings making a public choice between incineration and suicide, and often suffering the most extreme pangs of both fates. Yes, we will look. And yes, we will remember it long after other miseries have intervened." -Christopher Hitchens (from the essay For Patriot Dreams)
