My opinion is just that, an opinion. Whether or not thereâ€™sÂ â€˜a rightâ€™ or some think itÂ â€˜wiseâ€™ to build a mosque two blocks from where the World Trade Center crumbled – the timing is awful.
There are pivotal moments in history that require time and space for those who experience its chaos to process, accept, and heal from suffering caused by the choice of others. If the 9/11 Memorial was already established and there was confidence restored in the systemÂ â€˜the rightâ€™ might be easier for many to acquiesce. But does that actually make itÂ â€˜rightâ€™ ?
Ironically this is a drawing I did six years before 9/11.
