solemn anniversary

There’s nothing much I can say about September 11th that hasn’t been said already, so let’s just leave it at this: I count myself very fortunate not to have lost any loved ones, friends, or even casual acquaintances two years ago today, and I feel bottomless compassion for all those who did. It seems impossible at times (or even most of the time), but I can’t stop daydreaming that someday all people everywhere in the world will be able to live in an atmosphere of tolerance, understanding, cooperation, peace, and love. It won’t happen in my lifetime, but let it be in my children’s or grandchildren’s lifetimes. Please.

got something to say about that?
