September 11, 2001. Three years have passed—three more nails in the cross—but we remember.

2001 and 2004 are dates. 2749 is the number who died. Some were in the bowels of the towers when they fell. Some died beating on the doors to the roof, kept locked after the bombing in 1993. Some leapt out their windows to plummet through the air. Firefighters rushed heedless into the dark, into the maelstrom of cries and dust, and passed there beyond the world of men. Rick Rescorla, security chief for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, sang Men of Harlech. He was last seen carrying a crippled member of his firm down the stairs.

In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, America weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

One Response to September 11, 2001

    We are America.

    Terrorism may abound, and illnesses may plague us, but we have children. We can be comforted. We do not need to jump from towers, or bang at doors that won’t be opened. We can open up our arms and rush heedless of evil, only to do right. We can carry our cripled children in our arms, hoping only for their safety.

    Our time here is not another nail in the cross. Let us choose to rush in for good. Let us lift up the feeble knees.

    Do right, America, and be comforted.

WELCOME
