I cannot stop thinking about the book "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close", by Jonathan Safran Foer, which I have just completed reading.  Is it a book about the 9/11 attacks only?  No.  Is it about terrorism only?  No.  It is also about refugees, survivors, war, the frailty of the human mind and heart and the ways in which the human spirit heals itself.  It makes your heart ache, your stomach contract and your intellect question what you think you know to be true about war.  Read it.
