Sacred Ground

People are talking of “sacred ground” at the opening of the Holocaust Museum.  It might better be called scared ground.  It feeds our fears and supports wasteful spending on airport security.  Do we really think terrorists will attack airplanes again, when there are plenty of other easy targets such as shopping centers as is being done in many countries?  My heart goes out to the victims’ families, but we need to stop crying and ask why it happened.  Why are we so hated that people are willing to take their own lives to harm us? We are arrogant, militaristic bullies.
