                                           REMEMBERING   9/11

"Rabbi Kula became fascinated with the last words of those killed on September 11th. After reading a few stories in the paper, he began seeking out the last words and sentences of anyone he could find who was killed that day. And you know what he discovered? Not a single person said 'Kill them.' 'Get those **** back.' 'Avenge my death.' No. Last words were not about hatred; they were sometimes about fear, but ultimately, and overwhelmingly, the last words of those killed on 9/11 were about love. 'Tell mom and dad I love them.' 'Tell the kids I'll miss them and I love them.' 'Julie, it's bad, but know that I love you.'" 
~from "Ten Years After 9/11, the Last Word is Love," by PCUSA Teacher of Peace Colleen Kelly, founding member of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows

Very strangely on September 9th  1906, Mahatma Gandhi began in Durban, South Africa his protest based solely on TRUTH and NON-VIOLENCE ...which he named SATYAGRAHA(the force of Truth)..
More than anything else today OUR WORLD needs the healing touch of TRUTH, NON-VIOLENCE LOVE and PEACE!!!!
