I had an acquaintance who, in the days after Sept. 11, would remark to me that the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Flight 93 and the Pentagon had given her life "so much more meaning." I would hear this over and over: It's made me go back to church. It's made me love my family more. It's made me value my life. Okay, I guess whatever gets you there, but that's kind of, no, not kind of, that's very, very sick.
It later relates to Katrina being viewed the same way.
