The heroes of Sept. 11

To the Editor: 

It is a year later, and we still face the memories of Sept. 11 horrors by honoring our heroes. I suspect the terrorists felt they were laying down their lives for their nations or families as well. Some of us are no less tearful about these memories, or actual losses, but perhaps we are more ready to ask questions about the reasons behind the terrible prices that were paid. 

All wars create heroes, even those that are tragically misguided and senseless.
