In Memoriam September 11

Of course, it was a day of reflection here in Washington, with a memorial Mass celebrated by the students at my school. If anyone out there has forgotten why the United States has done what it has done, you might want to review some pictures of what happened in New York and Washington. Those images still haunt me, as does the memory of little sixth-graders and older kids, too, asking me if their parents (who work at the White House, the Capitol, the Pentagon, everywhere in Washington) are dead, as do the constant flights of military helicopters and jets over my house for the past two years.

Requiescant in pace. WE WILL NOT FORGET

Please consider making a contribution to the Memorial for the Pentagon victims, which will cost about $12 million in private funds, with no money coming from the government. Contributions can be sent by mail to:

The Pentagon Memorial Fund
P.O. Box 6285
