A Survivor of 9/11 Talks about What's Really Important

[Editor's Note: this brief passage was posted by BL Ochman in the IPR digest on the second anniversary of 911. BL lived just blocks away from the towers and used her online contacts to win against a landlord who was demanding back rent on the uninhabitable apartment. It is used with her permission.]

This is a rough week for me and a lot of other people who, although injured, survived the World Trade Center disaster. I don't know why, but this anniversary feels worse than that first. Maybe it's because by now I expected to be "past it", to "just move on," to "let it go." But I know the events of the day still weigh heavily on a lot of you too.

Thousands of people in the worldwide online community came to my rescue when I faced the darkest of times a year after 9/11. That outpouring of support pulled me through and I will always be grateful.

Even in the midst of the holocaust of September 11, 2001 many people gave their lives to help strangers. Before they were murdered that morning, most people's last words were "I love you," not "I hate you." My prayer is that we always will remember that the power of love is exponentially greater than the power of hate - always has been, always will be. Let's do what we can to spread love and caring and reject hate and fear.

I have far more books in my office than I will ever read, and the receipt of a free book does not affect my review.
