I struggle to find the words that express how I feel about September
11. In many ways I think I subconsciously reject finding those words,
because they may just bring back the pain that I’ve long struggled to cope with.
This quote though, reminds me of how I felt watching the horrors of the day.
We stand, as it were, on the shore, and see multitudes of our fellow
beings struggling in the water, stretching forth their arms, sinking, drowning,
and we are powerless to assist them. -Felix Adler
