My prevailing feeling in the days after 9/11, was that we were about to experience a giant forward leap in human consciousness.
The particular nature of that tragedy–with nearly 3000 people of more than 60 different nationalities and multiple faith traditions perishing that day—brought our interdependence into such a stark relief.
Everything we do, affects all of us. The people we love and the people we can’t possibly imagine having anything in common with.

The idea is to claim them; to claim each life lost to violence, as a life of a beloved kin and then to
do something, Do something. Do something.
