9/11 - With Respect

September 11, 2006 will be five years from a tragic moment in world history. The world will reflect. Innocent citizens from around the world were killed and countries from around the globe suffered. Many families were injured and still hurt.

Much has happened in the past five years that has added to the world's pain. There is a sense that our values have been tested and some of us may have lost their way.

So deep was the wound that the United States struck back fiercely - sometimes blindly lashing out like a hurt child looking for anyone and anything to blame. That child of humanity who is the United States is still hurting and struggling to find its way back to peace and safety.

The world needs to remember that the US is deeply hurting. The path to peace is not to ignore pain or its causes. Respect and acknowledgement is key. On this anniversary the world needs to remember and respect those that suffered lose.

To all who have suffered from the tragic evil event - peace, hope, and new beginnings to you.
