When despair for the world grows in me
Following the attacks on September 11, many people have looked to art, in all its forms, for consolation.
Did any piece of art help comfort you following the attacks?
Jean Holabird of Cambridge painted "10-3 - Murrary and Greenwich, 3 p.m.," a watercolor scene from Ground Zero. Many artists responded visually to the September 11 attacks.

and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and I am free.
