In the Midst of Memory

Today is 9/11/12 Today U.S. citizens are lost in the midst of remembrance. It is interesting to see the popular news stations that still play the footage of the tragedy and how many people flock to see it. I am not sure that this is healthy, but maybe it is necessary for some who may still have some kind of residual feelings of guilt, fear and hatred. There is one thing to grieve and another to wallow. Grief is a natural response to loss. It has it's stages and everyone goes through them at different points in their life, sorrow has it's place. Grief is for those who felt the true loss of something or someone. Wallowing is akin to taking the pictures and video of the tragedy and almost reveling that it is time to think on it again, to prove something, to say see what was done? See that is what I feel re-playing the awful videos of the Twin Towers is doing. This is almost a re-traumatizing act. Remembrance is important, paying respect to families who lost their loved ones this is important. We need to remember what we are remembering for. The cause of 9/11 was heinous and wrong, we need to learn from this. But we just need to remember the people who lost their lives, be respectful to their families and help them heal. Peace today to all my brothers and sisters, if you are wondering who that is it's you. Melanie
