[v12-engine] last words

I have refrained from continuing this thread, but I have just heard and seen
the Dean of the Cathedral Church of St Peter and St Paul, the national
Cathedral in Washington, USA, say the most important thing: it must be
heard: He prayed that at this hour, while US government officials deliberate
which (necessary) steps to take, that God grant them the wisdom “not to
become the very evil” they are fighting.
The loss of more innocent lives must not happen. Terrorism must be
stopped, but the root causes, not just the symptoms of terrorism must also
be addressed, and quickly. What has brought the world to this? What actions
or attitudes of all of us have fomented, encouraged, made “necessary” to
the sick mind, such barbaric acts? Have we the courage and resolve not only
to punish, but to change the way we act towards one another as individuals
and nations? Will will allow others the freedom of action and speech and
self-determination that we demand for ourselves? Will we stop interfering
where we are not wanted? Obviously, the course of action taken so far has
not worked. A radical change of attitude is necessary.
This is a view from a Canadian, from one with the greatest respect and
affection for my cousins, with admiration for their generosity and courage.
I hope it is accepted in the spirit in which it is offered.

Well said and well received. While I find it impossible to forgive those
responsible for such a despicable horror, certainly as important, if not more
so, while we pursue patient and well thought-out justice, is that we must NOT
injudiciously seek revenge on those not involved-merely because of race,
cultural leanings, or religion. Just as we, the great majority of the
world’s people, regardless of country of origin, will find this loathsome
terrorist act far beyond any level of acceptability. Although surely many of
us must vent our feelings to once again find our personal peace, I hope it
will be, at best, thru positive action, or at worst, thru negative words…as
evidenced by Andrew Thomas. And while I found his words totally repulsive
and beyond belief at this tragic time, he is, indeed, entitled to say them,
as he states. God Bless America!!

…and Jag content, thanks to many of you Brits, for your heartfelt support.
Now I’m done…
