We press on

Five years after 9/11, the United States is still pressing on. The world has certainly changed, but how significant was 9/11 as a part of that change? Weren't we already on this trajectory? Could such a horrific event have tilted us in slightly a different direction? What did that day really mean for us?

Assessing 9/11's true import is a task that will fall on the shoulders of our grandchildren...or perhaps those of even later generations.

We press on.* But do we press on for the better? What is "the better"?

* Please read the lyrics to "Press On" from the Selah album of the same name. Link found in the blog post title. When you get to the page, scroll down till you find the song.
