9/11.......Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord





We sit by and watch the Barbarian, we tolerate him; in the long stretches of peace we are not afraid. We are tickled by his irreverence, his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creeds refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond: and on these faces there is no smile.

Sadly...we have already forgotten. Hasn't taken us very long to forget, either.

Beautiful video, beautiful music. I have before used this same song to contemplate Mary standing beneath the cross while her Son is dying. No sadder music was ever written...
