Go and Wash in the Pool of Siloam

Gerard Van DerLeun has the healing prescriptive for yesterday's outrageous scarring of the national psyche. Go and read it all.

Thank you for sending me there Joan.

I was on the Promenade later that evening...that was exactly what it was like. The police wouldn't let my friends and me cross the Brooklyn Bridge, since the City was on lockdown, so we just cried on the Promenade instead, feeling completely and utterly useless. Thank God somebody hasn't forgotten about that day.

Yeah, Gerard is like that.

Erica said...

I wonder if other people have read this..they really should..it was compelling and heart-breaking.

(sidenote: whoa, my word verification is the word "after.")

Hey Erica! Nice to see your phizzog around here. I missed this comment somehow.

I was thinking of you the entire time I was reading that essay.
