Listening as an act of love

I was asleep in bed when the phone rang.  I picked up the phone and Graham's friend Joe said to me, "America has been attacked."  I thought he was joking.

That is how I learned about the terrorist attacks of 9/11.  

Over the past few years I have been following a classmate of mine as he leads a team that is creating the 9/11 Museum.  His TED presentation describing his work is full of beauty, lyricism, and kindness.  He talks about "the poetry of reflection," "meaningful adjacency," and the "literature inside all of us."

Watch the video.  Remember the day.  Tell me where were you when you heard the news?  I'd like to know.
