Todd Beamer's Dad Says It's "Too Soon..

for us to become complacent."

This great piece about the movie United 93 from today's WSJ may be the most eloquent thing anyone has written since that day.

More great lines:

This film further reminds us of the nature of the enemy we face. An enemy who will stop at nothing to achieve world domination and force a life devoid of freedom upon all. Their methods are inhumane and their targets are the innocent and unsuspecting. We call this conflict the "War on Terror." This film is a wake-up call. And although we abhor terrorism as a tactic, we are at war with a real enemy and it is personal.

There are those who would hope to escape the pain of war. Can't we just live and let live and pretend every thing is OK? Let's discuss, negotiate, reason together. The film accurately shows an enemy who will stop at nothing in a quest for control. This enemy does not seek our resources, our land or our materials, but rather to alter our very way of life.

I'll be there this weekend and I'm encouraging everyone I know to do the same.

We Must Never Forget.
