in thread The World Trade Center Tragedy

I am sorry for your anger and your pain and for the contribution my last post has made to your anger and pain.

Whether it was your intention or not, expressing the desire to turn another country into a parking lot amounts to expressing the desire to kill many innocent people. We have all done or said things in anger that we have bitterly regretted.

The point I am ineptly trying to make was that atrocity spawns atrocity. This was a horrible, evil thing. Yes, some kind of violence is probably the appropriate response. No, we should not blindly slaughter more innocents in response because this is the only thing we have the power to do.

Perhaps it is best to keep this thread as a place for people to share their pain.
