"I hear people saying that they keep trying to understand why the hijackers did what they did on September 11th. I don't think anyone can understand something that hateful unless they are that hateful too. If we can't understand it, that means there's still good in us. As long as there's still good, there's still hope."

A child's perspective on September 11th
As we look back on the tragic events of September 11th, I can't help feeling I have little to add to what has been said and is being said. I will, however, share a thought from my wonderfully articulate daughter. During a recent conversation about those events, she said something profound. I will leave my comments on this day of reflection and sadness to her.
