I'm a day late and a dollar short, but there was one column commemorating the anniversary of 9/11 that caught me, and I thought I'd share it. Seemed to speak to me of life. It's written by a long-time columnist for The Asian Reporter, a Portland, Oregon weekly newspaper. His name is Polo, the name of the column is Talking Story in Asian America.
Here's an excerpt, see the full column by clicking on the image below:
Humbled, because for anger I have no more energy. Because with bitterness you only become more numb. For sadness we have no more tears. In withdrawal there'll be no more hearty laughs. Only in humbleness, our elders have told and told and told us, can we quietly find how to love, and simply love, again.
