Is it possible to remember 9/11 and appropriately honor those directly affected and yet look for a new ways to respond, ways that seek healing instead of vengeance? I hope so.
Eleven years later, I try to make sense of what we’ve done to ourselves and others in the name of security. It doesn’t always work for me.
I believe we can do better. I believe something like the Charter for Compassion the key.
My site stats do a 9/11 tribute. Fittingly, the surge is from visits to my post, “September 11, 2001 – Never Forget.”
Our prayers are for those affected by the 9/11 attack.
