I'm not sure if this comment should be here, in the "Pet Peeves" thread, or maybe on another board entirely, but I think that using words like "tragedy" or "disaster" to describe the events of 9/11 dilutes their meaning and helps us to lose focus on what really happened and how it affects us.<P>What happened in NY and DC was an <I>attack</I>; we need to remember that. . .and act accordingly.

NY choreographer Tamar Rogoff explores a very personal issue in her new work at the Painted Bride but helps each of us through the post-traumatic stress of September 11. Those of you who suffered insomnia and claustrophobia in the days following that date know what I mean. Here's the thread on Rogoff in the Modern forum:

Arts offers a way to pay tribute to Sept. 11
Organizations are planning events ranging from concerts to exhibits

Cassandra Braun, CONTRA COSTA TIMES

THE DATE is quickly approaching: Sept. 11. Some of us will honor those who lost their lives -- and the spirit of those who have endured in the face of tragedy -- by attending candlelight vigils, while others will reflect with moments of silence and rumination.more

Yesterday I was watching the special session of the United States Congress meeting in Federal Hall in New York City (where the first congress met and George Washington was sworn in) to commemorate the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

The The United States Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, read an extremely touching and beautiful poem called "Names." It was about all the names he has seen on a wall of the people lost that terrible day. The poem was so moving. I have been looking online for it, but as yet have been unable to find it. He probably wrote it for yesterday's occasion.

Poetry is like spoken dance.

Quote:
In the arts, a new seriousness

Mike Rogers, MSNBC

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5 — It usually takes cataclysmic events to change the direction of art. Perhaps that goes without saying. Ever since the days of cave painting, people have been making art about dramatic events. These days, anyone interested in culture is wondering how the terrorist attacks of 9/11 will transform the arts. And it’s not only the visual arts. All forms of cultural production, from literature to film to music, drama, dance and television, have geared up for a major paradigm shift.
