Pat Boone's Got It Right: Show Us the Pictures, PLEASE!

From WorldNetDaily, Pat Boone's article Saturday 9/16/06 is right on: we should keep viewing the images of the destruction of the twin WTC towers repeatedly until we defeat the very evil enemy that brought them down:

"If you keep pickin' at it, it'll never heal."

We've all heard that one, right? And when it comes to a physical wound, like a scab, it's true. Even when it comes to an emotional or psychic wound, it can be true.

But failing to dress and treat a physical wound – or burying and sublimating an emotional wound, instead of examining and dealing with it – can interfere with complete and proper healing, as well.

Out of sensitivity for the sorrow of those who lost loved ones, they've encouraged us to trust our memories and forego replays of the planes plowing into the Twin Towers, the trapped and desperate people leaping from upper floor windows, the ghastly imploding of the buildings, all the many other horrors playing out live before our eyes.
