‘You unspeakable bastard’


Americans are going to observe a grim event tomorrow.

It’s the 14th year since the 9/11 attacks that changed the country forever. I won’t try to make sense of what happened on a day that no one ever anticipated would unfold as it did.

Leonard Pitts Jr., a columnist for the Miami Herald, spoke for us all the next day with this stirring essay. I was proud to publish it in the Amarillo Globe-News. Here it is … in its entirety.

Read it and remember what you felt that day.


It’s my job to have something to say.
