How quickly we’ve wished the years away. A world so weary of war. Russia, China and Iran now threatening. Communism and its prison camps in full swing. The first adult generation not knowing the Twin Towers. Populations distrustful of authority. Millions of new billionaires cashed up. A greater number of refugees poor. Smartphones powered by unsocial media. And TVs streaming global games of thrones. 2001’s victims now history. What progress we’ve made! Welcome to September 11, 2019. © 2019 Adam Parker.
