I don't know what to say anymore 6 years down the line except that a lot of innocent people die all the time and that without question or exception, the people who died in these murderous, criminal, cowardly, evil attacks on 9-11, were innocents and did not deserve to die.
**I will say this; the morning of Sept 11 2001 I was at the USMC base in Quantico Virginia and I was unable to see any of the images of the attacks until I got home about 5.5 hours later. I am watching the re-broadcast of the NBC coverage of that morning and it really is bizarre for me to see this whole thing again as a set piece. My stomach is clenching up and I find myself desperately wishing for the power to go back in time and stop this.
***This seems appropriate:
"... I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"
