The author finds a major challenge in post-September 11 America: a need for greater vigilance toward terrorism and other emerging threats while maintaining the openness that is the country's strength and potential best hope for the future. She finds that the Sabbath, with a set of practices that stimulates the imagination, can offer insights and inform the political process.
