On the morning of 9/11 I was being wheeled into the emergency room to have surgery. I had no clue what was going on, and to tell the truth, at that time, I wouldn't have cared...such was my state. I am ashamed to admit it, but there I was and that was that.
I am sure that I am joined in sending prayers, however each of us form them, out into the world today. Fervent prayers for peace, comfort, love, clean water, education, shelter, hope and tolerance for all people. In our own personal way, I hope that millions, billions, around the world are holding their own special vigil. A vigil that will penetrate barriers of hatred and ignorance, a vigil that will honor and remember all innocent victims of violence, a vigil in which we will all say "No more" no matter who we are and where we live. May our prayers, meditations, hopes, dreams and actions take wing and join together. Peace to All.
