Some things we can only make sense of through story

I’ve never watched TV news coverage of the 9/11 memorials, possibly because I’m not strongly geared toward television in general, possibly because I felt like all the news media failed me that day and in the months that followed and I’m wary of their coverage of it even now.

But every year I reread John M. Ford’s “110 Stories.”

This year, I’ve added K. Tempest Bradford’s “Until Forgiveness Comes.”

I’m still thinking about that story, and about why it got to me so.
