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.

NEW YORK - You've seen Phil Martelli get angry, edgy, streetwise, sarcastic, proud. You've seen him happy. This was different. As soon as his St. Joseph's Hawks won the Atlantic 10 tournament on Sunday, Martelli's chin started to quiver. He looked behind his team's bench, where his wife had already broken down in tears. "I was trying to hold off," Martelli said later. "When I saw her and how emotional she was, I broke. " Did Judy Martelli often get full-on emotional like that after the big ones?

ONE OF THE wonderful things about living your whole life in the same place (and in my case, 45 years in the same house) is the ability to mourn people you've never met. Those who move away from the old neighborhood - whether that be a four-block square or an entire ZIP code - clearly have memories and even make periodic returns like the Capistrano swallows. But the ones who stayed behind have a special gift for appreciating native things. In some ways, that's counterintuitive.

When the phone rang hours before dawn Sunday, Pamela Campbell, barely awake, ran to her daughter's bedroom and banged on the door so hard that she thought it would fall off its hinges. But Melissa Thomas didn't answer. The homicide detective on the other end of the line asked Campbell to describe her daughter. She had a tattoo of her niece's name on her arm, Campbell said, "MOM" splashed across her wrist, a pair of praying hands near her shoulder. She had short hair, always dyed some wild color, changing from blue to green to red on a whim.

Thaddeus Young was asked about the type of season Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Kevin Durant is having. Young went straight for the letter P. "Phenomenal," the 76ers power forward said. "Unbelievable. I've been knowing Kevin since we were like in the 10th grade. Just to see like he's elevated his game. He's well on his way to possibly being one of the greats. " As it turns out, Young and his teammates may not get an up-close glimpse of Durant when the Sixers host Oklahoma City on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

MOBILE, Ala. - Oklahoma corner Aaron Colvin crumpled at the end of a one-on-one passing drill in Tuesday afternoon's South team Senior Bowl practice. In the stands, Colvin's agent, Ken Sarnoff, immediately feared the worst. Sarnoff worked his way down to the field, where an orthopedist on hand already was manipulating Colvin's right knee. It felt loose. Quickly, Colvin was loaded into a car for transport to an MRI clinic. Sarnoff jumped into his rental car and the caravan sped off. "It's the most devastating thing I've experienced in 16 years in the business," Sarnoff said yesterday from Pensacola, Fla., where he accompanied Colvin to the clinic of famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

WITH BOTH Thanksgiving and Hanukkah next week, people who are dating someone who has kids would do well to at least consider following the example set by football superstar Deion Sanders , who is dating Tracey Edmonds, ex-wife of Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. According to Babyface, Sanders did something that was "the classiest thing in the world" when instead of just setting about building a relationship with the Edmonds' two sons, Sanders reached out to their father first.

A half-century ago, pop music's most popular, most important band had its first of seven straight anni mirabiles . In 1963, the Beatles became an international sensation. A very good year it was. (In a much-discussed June article in the Atlantic, Colin Fleming declared 1963 the quintessential Beatles year.) They released two albums, Please Please Me in March, Meet the Beatles in the fall. In their groundbreaking hit, "Please Please Me," they discovered what they could do in a studio; it got to No. 1 in England.
