September 11

Five years ago, like everyone else, I witnessed and watched the unthinkable. This hit very close to home: the Flight 11 terrorists stayed at a motel less than a mile from my house. And many of my daughter's colleagues were on that first plane.

Today, like everyone else, I watch and witness a world in turmoil. There are grave differences in the way we each hope and work for solutions, but today, and tomorrow, I pray that those differences pale from the weight of our common humanity. I pray that the commonalities and conscience of people across the world find a solution for a lasting peace.


  1. Amen! I was pregnant with Charlotte on 9/11, and yesterday it was really good to stand and talk to the other moms of her preschool classmates who were all pregnant that day, too. Including one mom whose brother was a fireman killed at Ground Zero ... Prayers for peace and hope.
