The sands of time

The PBS/Ric Burns documentary on the WTC ran for the better part of 3 hours this past Monday night. Long as it was, from beginning to end it was a gripping piece of journalism. I was at the WTC site myself 10 days ago, which was an even more gripping experience. It was cold, gray, and drizzling, but people were there nonetheless - many curious, but most like pilgrims visiting a shrine, a crowd of quiet and courteous people looking through the cyclone fencing and grappling with something that was beyond comprehension.

Now it's Thursday, September 11th, and for those on the West Coast who wanted to see memorial services broadcast live from the East Coast - from New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. - it was possible to tune in at 5:30 AM and spend 3 additional hours in front of the television before the workday began.

At this point, so many things have been said, so many words have been written, so many events have transpired as a result of that Tuesday morning two years ago - politically, economically, militarily, socially - it's hard to grasp it all, no matter how many hours are spent in front of the television or standing at the edge of the WTC pit.

During the PBS documentary, someone commented that life in New York City is back up and running full tilt once again, healing over the wounds like the waves at the sea shore inevitably smooth and restore 'wounds' in the sand at the water's edge. Wounds in people's lives can be healed over. Life can go on. It's not a matter of disrespect to the dead, it's a matter of respect for the living. People can't live as if there is no tomorrow. The greatest healing comes with simple acts of life returning to normal.

I'm going to dwell on that thought for today. I'm going to take a quiet walk and enjoy a sunny day. Tomorrow is soon enough to pick up the front page once again and wring my hands, along with the rest of the world, over the ongoing saga of human frailty, hate, and revenge.
