1. Under headline "Americans to mark grim anniversary"
United States-based columnist for the government
controlled weekly "The Sunday Mail" (09/07), Tendayi
Kumbula, dedicated his article to reflect on the
second anniversary of September 11, 2001 terrorist
attacks in the United States. Excerpts:

2. "On Thursday they will be observing a grim anniversary
throughout the U. S. A. It is the second anniversary of
September 11, 2001. . .Life has never been the same in the
U. S. since the twin terror attacks claimed hundreds of
lives at the World Trade Center twin towers. . .and at the
Pentagon. . .On Thursday morning, Americans in various ways
will mark that grim anniversary. President George W. Bush
has proclaimed that flags should be flown at half-staff in
honor of the dead. Churches are organizing services and
prayers. . .But underlying all this is concern about why it
happens, what it means and whether it could happen again.
There is a palpable level of nervousness that comes from
knowing when and where the terrorists will strike again.
That concern was underlined by a Federal Bureau of
Investigation warning issued on Friday about a terrorist
threat. . .So, as Thursday rolls around, Americans will try
to act normal. But there is little doubt that the terror
attacks have altered American lifestyles."
