"Healing" in Blacksburg

After 9/11 when the late Peter Jennings was hosting a bunch of kids on the following Saturday on an ABC Saturday Morning Special, I made an unfortunate comment to my hostess essentially saying, "What what the heck do we care about what these kids have to say?"

She, rightfully so, shot me lasers. After a bit, I apologized.

The idea that we should already be calling for healing without a period for rage and then mourning strikes me as premature.
