To the editor:
Thank you for publishing Elizabeth Black's moving account of her and her daughter's responses to the 2001 tragedies in New York City. For the first time in all of the years and many stories on the subject since, I found in Ms. Black's writing my own feelings succinctly and completely reflected.
I have nothing to add, except that, to shrink the events of that day, and its consequences on our national psyche, down to simply 9/11 has always seemed wrong, a way of bypassing the emotions so eloquently expressed in Black's essay. Yet, so typically American.
We still have so much to learn.
