Our Grief is Not Special: The Pain of September 10

The following is the text of a speech given at anti-war rally in Austin, TX, September 11, 2005

This is not a September 11 speech.

This is a September 10 speech.

We all remember what we felt on September 11, 2001. I want to talk about what I felt on September 10, 2001.

On that day, I was in a state of profound grief, in a world saturated with unnecessary pain and suffering.
