    Sept 11th was a day without parallel. For an older generation that fought and lived through the two world wars, riots, terrorist attacks, the holocaust, the carnage and destruction on the 20th century, it brought back memories.

How this happened is an illustration of herd immunity: that is, although not everyone is vaccinated against measles, enough people have been and as a consequence the virus has a hard time finding a new host. However, recent, small outbreaks in the U.S. have public health officials worried.
