How to reflect on 9/11 by playing chess

The company I do consulting at is allowing all employees and consultants to take from 8:30AM to 10:30AM to reflect in any way we wish on what happened during 9/11/01.

While this was a terrible incident, we figured the best way to reflect was to play chess, like we do often during lunch time. However, perhaps to really reflect on the disaster, we shouldn't play with the rooks. Castling could still happen, but only as a way to move the king two squares, to truly show vulnerability. Instead of rooks, we can replace them with extra bishops to symbolize all the extra preaching going on because of the 9/11 disaster.
