The Tragedy of Our Decade

In one of his essays, Joseph Epstein, the American cultural critic and essayist, writes: “Just when you begin to think you understand a thing or two about the drama of life, they change the scenery and send in a whole new cast of characters.” Epstein’s wonderfully constructed words are most applicable to the global affairs of our decade. Since the tragic events of September 11, the world has been faced with one major enemy: al-Qaeda and its affiliate groups throughout the world.
