Today was a little easier…I’m not talking about how I feel in relation to upcoming events, but how I feel about past ones. Today is, after all, 9/11. And today was just a little easier.
Maybe it is the fact that my attention is focused on next week; maybe it was simply the passage of time. But today, as I drove past the Pentagon shortly after 9 am, as I returned from morning prayer at school, it was just a little easier. Yes, I still turned my eyes sharply to the heavens as a plane flew overhead in the landing pattern headed toward Reagan International Airport. Yes, I probably still held my breath a bit. It was the same, clear blue sky.
But, today was just a little easier. And right now it is good for me to understand that healing happens, if you just let it. Lots of things to remember today.
