Peggy Noonan Says America Has Lost the Thread: It Feels Like We No Longer Live in the Country That Came Together After 9/11. How Do We Get That Back? Daniel Whyte III Says We Never Will

America Has Lost the Thread It feels like we no longer live in the country that came together after 9/11. How do we get that back?

I want to stay with 9/11 to say something that struck me hard after the ceremonies last Saturday. The grief felt and expressed had to do with more than the memories of that day 20 years ago. It also had to do with right now.

We feel disturbance at this because we don’t know if we can get our way back. The losing of the thread feels bigger than ideology, bigger certainly than parties. It feels like some more fundamental confusion, an inability to play the role of who we are, and to be comfortable in who we are.
