I keep physical mementoes of the worst events of my life and, as needed, look at them. Modern “psychology” would claim that this is some sort of sadistic ritual, but modern “psychology” is pretty much satanic – so, make sure you factor that into the calculus. No, I look at reminders of horror, tragedy and human evil just to make sure that it still elicits pain, because the day that it doesn’t, I will know that I am either becoming or already have become a monster too.
This is why it is important on the 11th of September to look at videos like these, and make sure that the pain and anger remains evergreen. It wasn’t a movie. It was real, and those are real people jumping, because in the span of a few minutes on a beautiful late-summer morning, they were forced to make the decision as to whether it was better to fall a quarter of a mile to their death or to burn alive. Around 200 chose to jump.
Something like this, and far worse, will happen again. You might be caught up in it. If you aren’t in The Church, get in. If you are in, stay confessed. Mentally prepare to die, and to die in horrible circumstances, and pray the Fourth Glorious Mystery of the Rosary every day, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, the fruit of which is a happy, holy death, which CAN be had in even the worst circumstances IF one is prepared.
