IN CASE I haven't done so yet, I want to thank all the letter-writers who wrote such wonderful heart-warming things about my op-ed ("A meditation on life and death," Sept. 27). I didn't expect such an overpowering feeling of love from people I do not even know personally - it made me cry. But they were tears of gladness. Thank all of you for caring, you made my day.

Enough grieving. Our hearts go out to the victims of 9/11, but after today, let?s put away our sorrow. We?ve had a year of it. We?ve had our fill. Tears and looking back won?t help us look forward, can?t help us remain vigilant. Since 9/11/01, our war on terrorism has accomplished much. There is one less terrorist-coddling totalitarian regime in the world. We have proven to ourselves and to the rest of the world how resilient we are. We may not be the Greatest Generation ? but over the last year, we?ve been great enough.

WHY CAN'T the United States be more like Rwanda? Or Turkey? Or Bangladesh? Those are just three of the many, many countries that have broken through the women-as-president/prime-minister ceiling. Somehow, it's hard to imagine those countries, which also include England, Ireland, Germany, among others, torturing themselves with the kind of ponderous thumb-sucking and plain old heebie-jeebies this country exhibits over the idea of a woman being elected president. And even harder to imagine those countries exhibiting the same kind of gleefully infantile reaction to a woman candidate showing - gasp - a pure human emotion than the pile-on following a Hillary Clinton meeting in New Hampshire.

IDON'T KNOW who is responsible for that Sept. 11 editorial ("A Farewell to Tears"), but may I make a suggestion for that person - send it to one of the families of the victims of the World Trade Center, or the Pentagon or Flight 93. Because I think that they will agree that we should just stop crying over losing lives that were innocent. And you know what, America has moved on and we have become stronger and we have moved on and these cold calculating killers have not stopped us from moving on but . . . we can never stop crying, the sadness is too overwhelming.

The real shock for the accused killer of a pregnant woman came at the end of his preliminary hearing yesterday. "I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but your brother was shot to death the other day," lawyer Joel S. Moldovsky told his client, Shawn Sharp, 19, of Chew Avenue near Chelten. "Somebody has to tell you," said the attorney at the bar of Municipal Judge Lydia Y. Kirkland's courtroom. Sharp broke down in tears and began shaking. He had to be helped from the courtroom by sheriff's deputies.

As word of Barbaro's death spread yesterday, many in the region fell to tears or silence. In the end, their prayers had not been enough. Nor were the lighted candles, the countless get-well cards, the bags of feed, the carrots sent by children enamored of a powerful racehorse who fought first to win, then to survive. At the New Bolton Center for Large Animals in Kennett Square, tears streamed down the face of Patty Morgera, who was diagnosed with breast cancer days before Barbaro won the Kentucky Derby last May. "He's been my inspiration," the Downingtown woman said.

Tears welled up in John Franco's eyes. Pitching in the World Series was a lot easier than telling his 10-year-old son his daddy's baseball career might be over. "The saddest thing was when I came home last night," the New York Mets captain said yesterday during a news conference to discuss his elbow injury. Fighting off tears, the 41-year-old reliever bowed his head for nearly half a minute, wincing, trying to regain his composure before facing the cameras again. "My son," he continued, "said to me, 'Is it my fault because I played catch the day before?

In this age of programmed drums and keyboards, it's reassuring to hear dance music performed by a 10-piece live ensemble. Tears for Fears, the English group that took five years off between its last two albums, built a fine set of music Sunday night at Mann Music Center, drawing from its three albums and a large menu of styles - most noticeably jazz, with a generous side helping of gospel. Though the title track from the latest album, The Seeds of Love, continues in the dance-pop vein of the group's early hits ("Shout," "Everybody Wants to Rule the World")

Crying, long considered to be a removal of one's emotional clothes, has never been extended an absorbent welcome mat in the work place. The busy have no time for tears, said Byron. Shakespeare decried teardrops as "foolish rheum" and "eye-offending brine. " But there are indications that the taboo is being diluted. In the hit movie "Broadcast News," Holly Hunter portrays an ace television producer who is completely in control when deadlines are descending but liquefies when the pressure lifts.

The weather forecast across the nation isn't very promising. A hail of bullets showered across the plains in a quiet suburb, where once we thought it to be a safe haven. But this high school, just outside Denver, was anything but safe. Unfolding at Columbine High School was a drama that unfortunately is becoming a replay of season after season of bad weather. You expect it, and it just keeps getting worse. "I don't get it," a student with fear in her face, spoke out, as tears flowed.

ON SATURDAY afternoon, she was just another member of the Villanova pep band. By Saturday night, she was famous. Google "Piccolo Girl" and up pops the now-familar image of Roxanne Chalifoux playing her small flute with tears streaming down her face immediately following Villanova's upset loss to North Carolina State. While the players and coaches exchanged postgame handshakes the cameras zeroed in on Chalifoux, who was wearing a Villanova-blue ribbon in her long brown hair as she somehow managed to play and cry at the same time.

In 1918 in Philadelphia, members of the American Gynecological Society listened intently as Ralph H. Pomeroy read his trailblazing paper at their annual meeting. It was time, he argued, for obstetrician-gynecologists to take more responsibility for preventing injuries to mother and baby during delivery. "Why should we consider it other than reckless to allow the child's head to be used as a battering ram wherewith to shatter a resisting outlet?" asked the influential Long Island ob-gyn.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cliff Lee will attempt to pitch through the tendon tear in his elbow that limited him to 13 starts last season. Despite months of rest and rehabilitation, the problem resurfaced Friday. Lee is 36 and pitching on maybe the final contract of an accomplished career. "It's hard to find a problem with going out there and just continuing to try to do it just to see what happens," he said. Surgery would sideline the lefthander for six to eight months, ending his season and perhaps his playing days.

A HOST of this year's "Richardson Dilworth Award" ceremony likened the event to the Academy Awards. By that measure, the city's version was far more entertaining and a lot less boring. The hour-long awards presentation, held at City Hall on Friday, was chock full of genuine laughs, tears, surprises - and even a little love story. And when each nominee learned they had won, their reaction wasn't all, "Blah, blah, blah . . . I'd like to thank the Academy. " The acceptance was pure Philly: "Get outta here!

NEW YORK - The NBA is trying to find a way to ease the wear and tear on its players. League officials have been discussing the issues of playing games on back-to-back nights and four games in five nights. "We are hoping to . . . come as close as we can to eliminating four games out of five nights," commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday night. "It's a math formula at the end of the day in terms of the number of days in a season and the number of games we play. "But we think we can make a dramatic reduction there.

Tony Wroten will have surgery to repair a partial tear in the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee. The 76ers backup point guard suffered the injury on Jan. 13 in a 105-87 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks. The injury was diagnosed this week by a specialist in Los Angeles. The Sixers had originally announced Wroten had a sprained right knee. This isn't the first time Wroten has torn the ACL in his right knee. He suffered the injury in a season-opening football game as junior at Garfield School in Seattle back in 2009.

IT'S A PICTURE of a group of guys who at one time reported on just about every robbery, rape, murder, major fire and accident fatality in the city. They were the police reporters for the city's three major newspapers. It was taken 54 years ago when they moved from Room 619 in City Hall to the new Police Administration Building (a/k/a "the Roundhouse"). And although the press room was on the Roundhouse's second floor, it was still known as 619. The engraved plaque on the door says so. Ten men are in the picture.

Before Ryan Howard's twin brother sued him for $2.8 million; before his father, who helped manage the Phillies slugger's money, allegedly requested a $10 million separation payment; before Howard claimed his parents and brothers conspired to defraud him, Howard planned a mansion with eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The sprawling Florida home was a place for the family - especially Corey, Ryan's look-alike confidant who moved from St. Louis to Philadelphia in 2008 to live with Ryan.

Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who played two games earlier this season for the Flyers, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while competing Friday for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and will undergo surgery Thursday. He will be out indefinitely, according to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall. Gostisbehere appeared in Flyers wins over Detroit on Oct. 25 and the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 28, averaging more than 12 minutes each game. A third-round pick in 2012 who helped lead Union College to the NCAA title last season, Gostisbehere suffered the injury during the Phantoms' 3-2 win at Manchester.

After the guilty verdict was announced Thursday in a Delaware County murder trial, the mothers of both the defendant and victim were brought to tears. One cried because her son was convicted; the other shed tears for her dead son, and for the loss the defendant's mother will suffer knowing he probably will spend his life behind bars. It took a jury less than four hours to convict Jamir Williams, 29, of first-degree murder in the July 2010 shooting death of Rahim Hicks, 21, outside a Chester restaurant.
