Beautiful, my friend, and important point of reflection 15 years after that unforgettable, previously inconceivable day.

WoW! I never read that one b/c we still lived in Brighton on 9/11/01. Wish we'd already moved here to Oliver Street. So grateful that you resurrected this article and shared it.

Amen, Paul. Amen.

I never saw this before. Just wonderful.

Paul, as usual I thank you for reaching deep, sharing wide, and for opening hearts, minds, and eyes.

What a beautiful tribute to a day of horror - and grace.


I felt my feelings again in reading yours. As with those tragic national
or local in the case of the Boston Marathon Bombing, we all recall where
we were and what we were doing. Sometimes as you have done here we
journal the feelings and the event. Sometimes, the remembrance of the day
on TV or at memorials will trigger the memories and put us right back in
the spot were we witnessed it.

In reading this post, I focused on your opening questions - so important
to ask as we approach the election that has been so fraught. I hope each
of us re-lights the candles in a way that we can become whole.
