Reflection

11 Sep

I’m not sure if this is a Diva-type post.  Whether we should go on with regular content, or not post at all today.  Other people will say things more eloquently, have more worthwhile rememberances of, as Verlyn Klinkenborg called it, “that sudden Tuesday” than I could ever cobble together.  Some people are shutting off the news today, and I’ll quite possibly be one of them.

I will leave this here, for those who wish to reflect.  It’s a poem by John M. Ford called “110 Stories,” and while it’s not easy to take in, it is probably the most powerful response to September 11th I’ve ever read.

One Response to “Reflection”

    I’m content with shutting off the news today. I know it’s going to be dominated by those who would insist that our pain and fear be kept fresh, as if the ten years between then and now hadn’t happened. For the hysteria to finally end, today has to be just another day. So for me, at least, it will be.

    Have a nice Sunday, everyone.
