Frankly, this week, with its outpouring of wisdom, mercy, and love has left me somewhat speechless.
Many others more eloquent than I have been able to beautifully express their thoughts and feelings about the people and events we have witnessed. From the speech to Congress, to the United Nations, to the lunch with the homeless and the fellowship with prisoners; from Mass at Madison Square Garden (and prayer at St. Patrick’s Cathedral), to the wisdom of schoolchildren in Harlem, and to the almost unbearable power of memory, compassion, and humanity at Ground Zero. And the Fiat.
At this moment in time I choose not to attempt to express what I am feeling in mere words. In the days ahead I will quietly ponder and reflect on these events. And I will pray. And I will try to be a better person.
And while it has been difficult to put my feelings into words, there is one thing I can say without a shadow of a doubt: I shall never forget it, and I, like many others, will never be the same.
