September 19, 2001; Pre-WWIII.

There was a terrible disaster on September 11, 2001, just over a week ago at the time of this writing. I myself have had, as I'm sure you all have, plenty of thoughts about this. I would be happy (. . . well, maybe not happy, but quite willing) to share these, but here, I'd like to share the insightful thoughts of someone else with an important perspective and message.

I received this as a forwarded email. As such, I think it's safe to assume that this thoughtful writer would support my spreading it as many ways as I can. I haven't been around on e2 of late, so please forgive me if this has already been noded--if it makes 1 more person read it because I'm posting it now, it's worth it. If this makes sense to you, then I guess I don't even have to ask you to pass it on.
As always, I'm open to (and, indeed, greatly appreciate) any suggestions/corrections/requests/any feedback for improvement of the presentation here. Thanks. And my humanity thanks you for reading this.

UPDATE: I've been made aware that dannye had in fact already written this up, so in place of the text, I forward you here to his writeup at the circle game. It's just one more click.
