Thank you to everyone who shared such heartfelt remembrances of September 11. I realize now what I’ve realized at the close of every September 11th since 2001: we’ll never really get it. We’ll join together, we’ll remember, we’ll grieve, we’ll re-hash, we’ll read and we’ll do whatever else we can to try to wrap our brains around what happened to our nation. But never will that evil fully make sense–would we want it to?
So instead, let’s move into September 12th, holding a part of our hearts empty, but looking firmly into the future. Let’s love our families better. Let’s speak more kindly to each other. And let’s seek something Larger Than Ourselves–because that’s where the Hope is.
