You can't plan that kind of magic. The police, emergency medical technicians and firefighters who walked across the field received a standing ovation. Fresh faced cheerleaders sobbed in one another's arms. The candles seemed to light instantaneously; the speakers, one Muslim, one Christian, one Jewish, were appropriate. Students thanked their parents for insisting that they go to what was essentially a funeral.
Sunday evening we watched "Band of Brothers," Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg's HBO miniseries on World War II. No danger of breaking the laugh barrier there. People were losing major appendages faster than the Dow was losing points Monday morning.
