The Most Important 30 Minutes

Last week I did a post on 9/11. For some of us this brought up a lot of unanswered questions. For others bitterness, sorrow. For others a sense of disconnectedness. And for others a firmly rooted anger, seething deep in their souls. Maybe even all these at once.

This could be the most important 30 minutes you ever spend watching a video. An extreme of compassion will only let the people you're trying to save harm you. An extreme of justice will drive them away in hate and anger. When we come to the middle we find understanding. When we come to the middle we can reach out in love. Genuine love.

Take the time. If you don't have it now, come back later. Grab your coffee. Don't go sit in front of your tv. Don't go browse the paper. (It says the same things today as it did yesterday.) The kitchen floor can wait a little longer. Get that next load in the wash, then sit down and watch these:
