I dropped in this morning to see if you had something encouraging to say as I started my work day. Thanks McNair for a good reminder that rings with truth not just in September.


This is kind of a different slant on 9-11, and I think it's wonderfully written and thought provoking. Thanks for the wake up call:)


Thank you. Good reminders that we should never forget. We lived in CT then and it greatly affected our town because of all the commuters and most of us felt like honorary New Yorkers anyways. My wife had to get out of the house today as she watched the news with all the reminders because she couldn't stop crying.


McNair --

Thanks for "covered in dust". As a New Yorker who went through the 9/11 attacks, my tendency has been to stay away from most writings about 9/11, moslty b/c I can't find any real connection with them viscerally or b/c I find that the writing veers towards trying to answer the "why's" of it all.

Personally, I think "why" is a very persecuting question. I prefer to just deal with what is.

I've read your blog on and off, very infrequentely, over the past several years. I found your blog a la SARK and it's inspired me to start "blogging again". I posted a new blog today on my MySpace page -- the first one in years.

Anyways, I appreciated your "covered in dust" blog post.

Erin :)


Very thought provoking and a beautiful positive memorial. I loved the closing. We often do not ponder the effect our purpose has on others or all that is lost when we do not pursue it.


Be still, my beating heart

summer beauty is night most. No doubt beautiful , jet-black bright dark moonlit night night, also has uncounted firefly sons dance trippingly. Be also having one two fireflies son in night, be flashing with the dim gleam in flying , this scene even if being a fine drizzle's be charming.
