There is this moment, often just a split second, between the time something happens and our reaction to it.
Anything can happen in this moment. Whatever does happen turns the wheel of karma.
In the moments and days after September 11, 2001, there was an open window for those of us here in the U.S., a time when we were stunned by what happened and we hadn’t yet reacted, as a nation. And then the window closed, in the form of a formal declaration of war on Afghanistan (and subsequently Iraq).
But before that, can you remember?
