FAIR & IMPARTIAL?
While the pictures and the footage were horrendous - we couldn't take our eyes off of them. It's as if we had to watch to believe that it was really happening - to us...to America.
As the story began to unfold, we were outraged...angry...livid. We wanted revenge - an eye-for-an-eye. We demanded some sort of retaliation. And we mourned.
Now, all these years later, it would seem that America will fulfill part of its' pledge to bring some of the guilty to justice - and we intend to do so where it all took place, right in the heart of New York City. We intend to give those we believe took part in the attacks a "fair trial." Some say that's a lot more than what they deserve. Others say that it is fitting. Still others believe that it opens the door for more attacks while some wonder at the ability of a trial set in New York City to be fair and impartial. What do you think?
