Reflecting Pool at the World Trade Center Memorial

Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Yesterday we remembered not only the innocent people who were killed in that awful attack, but the innocent who have, since then, been killed in response. I listened to a moving story from two women this morning: the first lost a brother in the attack on U.S. soil, and the second lost 19 family members in the U.S. retaliation in Afghanistan. It is important to remember that the same horror we experienced on our shores has also become a reality for tens of thousands of innocent people across the world. I hope you listen to this interview. It's incredible to hear people who have suffered the most take the highest interest in reducing violence and revenge.
