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.
