I am not one to dwell on tragedy; there is simply too much of it to absorb. And I tend not to like the self-consciously maudlin. But if there is one post you should read about September 11th, it is Mia's. Setting aside the references to God ('God' explain nothing from my perspective and is always used to explain that which appears unexplainable but can actually be parsed by reason) she is a poet about humanity. Her post is strong and haunting, especially the line "I refuse to apologize for my freedom."
