End Quote on 9/11
On that day, 6,000 people did not die. On that day, one person died, 6,000 times. We must understand this and all catastrophes in such a way, for big numbers only numb us to the true measure of mass murder. We say 6,000, or we say 6 million died, and the saying and the numbers explain nothing except how much death came in how short a time. Such big numbers sound more like scores or ledger entries than deaths. The real horror of that day lies not in its bigness but in its smallness, in the small, searing death of one person, 6,000 times.
And that one person was not a number but our father or our mother, our grandpa or grandma, our brother or sister, our cousin, or uncle or aunt, our friend or our lover, our neighbor or our co-worker, the gal who delivered our mail, or the guy who put out our fires or arrested the bad guys in our town. And the death of each and every one of them alone would be worthy of such a gathering and such a grief.
Rabbi Marc Gellman 9/21/2001…spoken at a memorial service at Yankee Stadium. At the time it was feared that as many as 6,000 had died.
