Aero-News Quote Of The Day (09.11.06)

"The horrible events of 9/11 injured this country but did not kill it. Like the human body itself, our system is robust and has a remarkable facility to heal itself. Remember the stock market opening within a week? Flying resumed in three days? The massive effort to clean up Ground Zero and return that area to business? We must remember all of the victims, [their loved ones] and those who were there and can never forget what they experienced. And then, move forward to some unknown point in the future when we can look back on another challenge met."

Source: John Merryman, one of the over 100 ANN readers who responded to our request Friday for thoughts on how the events of September 11, 2001 changed the world we live in... particularly the flying world.
