A Wound That Time Can't Heal
Time heals all wounds, my mother used to tell me. But eight years later, the horrible events of 9/11 continue to hurt. Some were wounded more critically than others that day, they who lost sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, spouses and loved ones. But all of us -- individually and collectively as a nation -- suffered damage to our psyches so severe that I don't believe time ever could, or ever should, heal our wounds. Yes, with the passage of time will come new generations who will not grasp the horror of that day. But let us hope that no generation ever forgets how suddenly our lives can turn and how precious are the moments in which we live.
