11 Years This 11th

I wish I could write something to bring solace to those families that lost loved ones eleven years ago today, but I would probably fail in the attempt.

I can only say that I pray the victims rest in the peace of Christ, that the families of the victims heal from the pain of loss, and that we as a people do not lose ourselves in the pursuit of justice.

I had mentioned earlier that my wife had plastered the bathroom walls with morning-sickness vomit; well, this weekend was the payoff for all the months of pregnant illness and misery. After having five male grandchildren, my parents finally have been introduced to a change in the form of a girl. Yes, my wife had our first daughter. Once the impact of that sinks in, maybe I will share my thoughts. Otherwise, my two sons and I will look on in shock and awe as we draw a collective happy blank.
