Welcome to the latest edition of Leumi’s Reading List. I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and out of harm’s way.
From this morning’s New York Post: “Amid a pandemic, economic woes and a raging campaign season, as well as nationwide and too-often-violent protests, New Yorkers, and all Americans, should still take the time Friday to mark the 9/11 anniversary. The events of 19 years ago remain of seminal importance — and the sacrifices and heroism deserve honoring.”
