So much beauty...
Reflecting on 9/11 today, I wonder why, when there is so much beauty in the world, that so many people are hell bent on destruction.
Here is one of my favorite quotes from the movie American Beauty, I think if it almost everday.
It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in. ~American Beauty, 1999
Peace be with you.
