Five years later ...

The blogosphere is full of memorials and reflections on this fifth anniversary of that dark Tuesday five years ago. Each one of us can remember where we were, what we were doing, when we got the news -- memories crystallized and frozen as the horror of the day unfolded.

I don't have any profound thoughts or eloquent words, so just offer a prayer for the souls of the deceased, steadfastness and courage in facing our enemies even as we pray for them and their conversion, and the dawning of that day when strife will be over and God will be all in all.

Happy Catholic has a good round-up here and here.

Todd quotes some thoughts of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

My new Bishop (Archbishop Wuerl) will be participating in an ecumenical Gandhian march in the capital, sponsored by the Memphis TN based MK Gandhi Institute. (Via Rocco).
Christianity Today provides a historical background on Theology for an Age of Terror.

The link to the 2,996 blog memorials for the victims (the site is overloaded). Here's one.

And last but definitely not the least, Peggy Noonan's column, I just called to say I love you.
I think the sound of the last messages, of what was said, will live as long in human history, and contain within it as much of human history, as any old metallic roar.
Requiescant in pace.
