Yesterday, with the passing of Britain’s 96-year old Queen Elizabeth II, we lost the last vestige of leadership of our “greatest generation.” For seventy years, Queen Elizabeth exemplified “a life of duty” whatever the circumstance. This Sunday will mark the twenty-first anniversary of 9/11. 2,750 people died in New York City, 184 at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and 40 in Shanksburg, Pennsylvania after the passengers of United Flight 93 thwarted that hijacking attempt. Both dates are now part of our history and consciousness, but for decidedly different reasons. May we never forget either.
