Most people who read this blog have an interest in escapism and most of the time when we escape we are heroes; whether that be a noble paladin, a Jedi Knight or a super hero.
Ten years ago one of the worst possible things happened. If it were a roleplaying game I'm sure the disaster could have been averted with some die rolls; but we all know that life isn't a game and most of us aren't heroes.
But there were those brave few who selflessly risked their lives for people they had never even met, and some died doing it. These are the true heroes in this world and we owe them our full respect and admiration for what they did ten years ago.
