More than half of the country voted for Donald Trump. This makes me feel unsafe. As unsafe as I felt on September 12, 2001.

Fifteen years have passed quickly, but the memory of September 11th is still as close as yesterday. It was a catastrophically sad and devastating day to watch, live, and remember. Many people that lived through it, would rather not talk about what they saw or the feelings felt.

Before 9/11, there was just a date on the calendar between the 10th and the 12th which never made me shudder. There was 9-1-1, but not 9/11. It's like...

September 11th  --  15 Years Later

The best we can hope for, then, is that we never forget the events of 9-11, and that whomever next takes the presidency will have the strength, wisdom, and courage to bring the kind of change needed to quell tensions both here and abroad and finally defeat ISIS. Because heaven help the entire world if our next president gets it wrong.

In Memory Of September 11

On that morning, I clearly remember where I was, what I was doing, and not believing what had just happened. I was 12 years old, young enough to question why, but old enough to understand.

New Study Shows Healing Effect Of Donating Objects To 9/11 Museum

In many ways my triage tag is a symbol of survival and a job performed. But it's also a reminder that my father wanted to protect me even as our world was shifting and his was ending. His love endures and that knowledge bubbles up and makes me happy every time I think about my triage tag on display at the museum.

The Best Way To Honor 9/11 Victims Is To Unite Our Fractured Country

But 15 years later, where are we now? Are we a country united or one divided again? A look at the headlines and it's pretty clear the American sentiment of the post 9/11 days are sadly long forgotten. The 2016 race to the White House is a mockery.

Video of Hillary played on the screen. "You're like her," my grandma said. "She works so hard. And she is so strong. See, even when she's sad, she's strong. She's your example. When you're sad, you can be strong, too. Do you understand me?"

Military Commissions Drag on at Guantanamo While Obama Keeps Promising to Close It

President Obama has been saying for the past eight years that he wants to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center. Although Congress hasn't made it easy, his insistence on continuing to prosecute these cases in the military commissions only undermines the credibility of his convictions.

I've seen terrorism close up but I don't live in a state of terror at all. For perspective, the world today is a safer place than it was during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Berlin Airlift, World War II. For people living in Europe and the United States, there has never been a more peaceful time or better quality of life. The terrorists haven't won. I just grew up.

Hillary Clinton might be a liberal icon to some, but in reality, she's the only candidate with neoconservative advisers and a hawkish foreign policy. If you dread more American involvement in the Middle East, perhaps Clinton might not be your choice for president.
