Life is full of danger and terror. Wherever we look we find the prospect of gloom. That said, let’s get on with living.
REFLECTIONS ON 9-11:
I remember the terror attacks of 9-11. I was a part of that history, as were many of you. I honor the memory of all the people lost on that tragic day and in all the battles that followed.
We are now into year eleven of the war on terror.
– Justified? Of course!
– Necessary? Yes, in the judgment of many people more knowledgable than I!
– Courageously fought by our nation’s warriors? Most definitely! — Righteous violence? As righteous as violence can ever be!
Is the war on terror a part of a never ending historical cycle of war and violence? Most definitely!
It might just be me — but I pray that we, all humanity, find a way to peace.
“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” ~ Thomas Paine
