I think the way I'd like to observe this 10-year mark is to encourage us all to move past the "safety before freedom" scaredy-cat cultural bias we've fallen into, and back to enjoying our freedoms (what this country was supposed to be about anyway). It's been long enough, get over it already.

I've noticed that something has crept into the language: when people travel, the usual supportive thing to say is "Have a safe trip!" ugh. The reason we travel is not to be safe, it's to have fun or accomplish something!

Please think about your language and at least don't say that to ME anymore. I'll accept "drive carefully", cause that's talking about a real issue (phil would say so based on the way I drive). But I'd much rather hear "Have a FUN trip", "Have a great time", or "Take lots of pictures" :)
