On each anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, I think about my neighbor who went to work there and never returned home. I think of those who died and of their families and hope that they are coping well with this hurt.  I think of the images on TV of the Towers collapse.  I think about the people I saw coming over the Brooklyn Bridge covered in ash looking like ghosts and zombies.  I think about lateness.

My neighbor, good provider that he was, made the decision to get up early that morning so as not to be late for work and he did not come home.  Some people made the decision to get up late that morning, were late to work, missed everything, and went home. Something is off here.  The results do not add up.  Do the right thing, make the right decision to be on time for work and end up with a bad result -- dead, or make a bad decision to do the bad thing, to be late for work and end…
