@patrickrhone I’m not sure when we’ll be ready to go. It will be so hard, for so many reasons. We want to go, and go soon, but we’ve been so exhausted, and it’s been difficult to find any rest. Battered with grief, of course, and also vigilant: we weren’t close enough to smell smoke, but the closest looting and damage was two blocks away. After so many nights of sirens, helicopters, and knowing that the genuine and justified rage and despair had been hijacked by terrorists and thugs… Well, only today are we feeling… rested? Is that the right word? Probably not.

(And be kind to yourself, if you decide you can’t face it today. You’re already facing it, already working on it.)
