On the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the individual communities and the nation will pause to remember those who died. Many still will have questions about why it happened, what it means and how we can continue to heal. There are those in the community who are often called on to help us make sense of life and death — our spiritual leaders. Some of the leaders will talk about Sept. 11 in their sermons this weekend. Others will hold discussions with individual members and various groups and organizations. Everyone will be prepared to offer a listening ear as members of their communities reflect on the tragic day. We will never forget.
