An Extraordinary Essay

Brian Doyle is a writer in Portland, Oregon, whom I first encountered as the author of this beautiful essay reflecting on 9/11/2001.

I just came across another essay he wrote from 2005: A Sin. He has a rare gift for expressing the dignity of humanity, even when he is confessing his own sins. He is an amazing writer.
