This girl, just like his
goddaughter and her brother and a million other kids in this
country, had gotten up today and gone to school never imagining she
would be in danger. She trusted all the grown-ups and teachers and
principals to keep her safe. It was why these schools, post-911,
had teachers wearing ID all the time and doors locked during the
day - the enemy was always supposed to be an outsider, not the kid
who was sitting right next to you.
