9/11: A Reflection

by Kristen Richards
September 11, 2002

This is not a news-as-usual day for us.


The difference between today and the same day last year is not a lessening of the sense of loss or even fear. What has lessened is the almost unfathomable sense of helplessness. While my city – the world – will never be the same, it is challenging and rewarding to be part of an industry that is so important to healing both – and can help them grow greater. 


Today is a good day for reflection. I am going to work in the garden to see that nature goes on, and remind family and friends how much they mean to me.


And on the 12th, we go back to work trying to make better places for people to work, live, play, and worship.
