How does 9-11 relate to new community?

How does 9-11 relate to new community? First, it shows the dangers of population compression. A fire chaplain struck down by one of the very people for whom he was praying speaks of the results of a failure to hear and help others. People running or wandering through a world of ash tells us what our world will be when some of us only see others as other.

Second, 9-11 shows us what can happen when a people comes together—we can feel real community. We can have heart, and we can ponder. Even if we abort these efforts. What could happen if we give full play—and work—to reflection and compassion? What is our best work, our true work?
