September 11

It's a beautiful day. The first intimations of fall are in the air. The sun is out, and the sky is blue. Something about the morning has been cruelly evocative of the one six years ago today, and the atrocities of 9/11 are on my mind, more so than on previous anniversaries. I am posting a series of stills from Winsor McCay's 1918 landmark animated film, The Sinking of the Lusitania, a graphic memorial to another atrocity from 92 years ago. The stills and the film are hauntingly beautiful and affecting. They're offered here as a prayerful lament.
