9/11 is clearly about remembering victims and the heroes who gave their lives while saving so many others plus doing everything necessary to ensure that this horrible act cannot be repeated. It’s a day that no American living 17 years ago will ever forget and I definitely remember exactly where I was when it unfolded. I’m sure you do, too.
Yesterday, I spent several hours with my friend Marc Merlin (in from California) visiting Paul Allen’s amazing Flying Heritage Museum and being reminded of the heroes of another generation – often called the Greatest Generation. Here, most of the planes, generally WWII-era, are still in flying condition (hence the museum’s name) and actually fly a few times a year. Moreover, especially when seeing mock-ups of the German V2 missile and the first two atomic bombs (Little Man and Fat Boy), it was quite sobering. If you’re in the Seattle area one day, I very strongly suggest a visit.
