men in uniformI Wish

I wish I could hate you
Bin Laden you BRUTE!
I’d throw you out of an airplane
With no parachute!
I wish I could hate you
And SHOUT it as you fall
But I WON’T because HATE
Is what started this all.
       - Laura de Medici, 13 years old

       - Deepak Chopra

       - Senator John Kerry

       - Rudolph Giuliani

Terrorists harm their own cause, no matter how valid their concerns might be.
       - Bill Blackman

The fundamental source of conflict in the world today is the socioeconomic deprivation of billions of people across the globe, coexisting with islands of enormous wealth and prosperity within and among countries.
