A moment of silence

Forget the "war" on terrorism and the dubious invasion of Iraq and our failure to finish the job in Afghanistan and the growing menace of Ashcroft's Homeland Security gang.

Pause for a moment and remember where you were, two years ago today. Let's have a moment of silence for the victims of terror, both on the ground and in the air.

And let's remember the tens of thousands of people around the world who have gone through similar things many times. People the USofA press, and the USofA public didn't care that much about until after it happened here.

My thoughts are with all my friends and family in the US and with the victims in NYC and their families. May this never happen again. But it will.

Today, on September 11, our 46 year old foreign minister, wife and mother of two young boys, died after having been attacked and stabbed with a knife yesterday in a department store in the middle of Stockholm. The killer is still at large.

Terror and violence are everywhere. And we are doing exactly the wrong things when trying to stop it.

I read that and my sympathy goes out to her loved ones. I hope they find the guy.

It does seem that the world isn't getting any better. We need a better plan to combat the causes that drive people to these extreme acts. We need to treat the disease, not the symptoms.
