9-11 isn’t just about remembering

It’s about honoring, and healing…

This is life’s nature: lives and hearts get broken — those of people we love, those of people we’ll never meet.”

The world sometimes feels like the waiting room of the emergency ward and we who are more or less OK for now need to take the tenderest possible care of the more wounded people in the emergency room, until the Healer comes.

Anne Lamott wrote those words. They are from her book, Traveling Mercies, a book that can help you, or someone you care about, heal.
