What to remember on 9/11

I think everyone with a keyboard will be writing tributes to the victims of 9/11, so I'm going to leave the poetry to more capable people. But when you come across something today urging you to "Remember 9/11", remember these things after you've thought about the fallen:
  • Remember the anger you felt that day
  • Remember who was responsible for it
  • Remember the many politicians who first called for stronger intelligence, strict counter-terrorism laws and a strong response, and who are now subverting those efforts
  • Remember all the nations that rallied to our side that day and then remember how few of them have stuck with us
