Subject: RE: Prayer-Free Mourning
we have been given a great opportunity. To show restraint, and wisdom. To demonstrate compassion and forgiveness. To show strength and decisive action.

All that can go towards finding and punishing the individuals involved.

But bombing innocent civilians should not be part of this plan. People whose death warrant is merely an accident of birth and the tyranny of poverty, keeping them in the place they are living and making them targets of our rash revenge.

We must pull together in grief and hope. Not anger and hatred.
