September 11

Remembering that day and feeling very sad -- for what happened that day, and so many things that have followed. Roger Cohen has a piece entitled "In the Seventh Year" in today's New York Times which captures my feelings, written in a style out of the Bible, talking about the seven years since that day and the actions and attitudes which have dominated since, ending on this sober note: "And it become plain at last what had been wrought -- but not how the damage would be undone." I wonder if everyone really does realize what has been wrought. It's sure easy to see it from this side of the world.
