September 11

I just read a blog by Susan Stabile, who lives in New York and lost people in the 9/11 attacks eight years ago. On her “About me” page it is easy to see that Susan is a woman of deep faith (also a law professor and an accordion player), but her post on 9/11 is, I think, relevent to all people, not just those of faith. It is short, and worth reading in full here, but this section is what grabbed me by the throat, and what I believe with my whole heart:

“We should remember. All of us should remember. Because this is the cost of of hatred. This is the cost of not finding ways to resolve our conflicts with each other. This is the cost of not loving enough.”
