business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

I find myself this morning wondering if there will ever be a 9-11 on which I won't feel obligated to write about the events that took place on that date in 2001.

I hope so. But I'm dubious.

Somehow, whenever I hear those numbers together, I can't help but think back on that day. Whenever, in September, we have a crisp and gorgeous morning, I can't help but remember.

That's probably a good thing.

But it probably also makes sense to recall the words of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, when addressing the students at the Harrow School in October 1941:

“The pessimist sees the problems in every opportunity. Whereas the optimist sees the opportunity in every problem ... Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense."
