20 Years

Evil tore a hole in the universe that day. Things fell apart. And it rippled. I’m not sure the evil of that day has yet to stop rippling.

Well, that is as far as I got today upon trying—as I have tried on nearly every anniversary—to write something about September 11. Writing usually brings me comfort, usually helps me put my thoughts and feelings into order. But I cannot write about September 11. Even at a distance of 20 years, it’s too close.

Shortly after I gave up on this post, I saw Dan Rather’s piece, “20 Years.” So I’m going to share that instead. I remain (since I first read his work as a Freshman writing student) in awe of his talent.

Do something kind today.
Put some goodness back into this world.
