the events of September 11, were painful beyond belief for me. Because
I grieve for the loss of lives, want justice for those lost on that
day; desire a world free, safe, and just for all individuals, and
want a future in which the events of September 11 can never be repeated,
I decided to set up this Web site.
truly believe, with all my heart and head, that a non-military response
is the best strategy for a permanent end to terror. So to end my
sense of isolation and to share my beliefs with others of like mind,
I decided to set up this Web site. I hope it can be a center for
information and material for creating a One World Peace. Please
feel free to send me any relevant material or links that you might

must proceed with the investigation into terrorism via the
use of a truly international team, citing and utilizing international
human rights law. The Geneva Convention and other international
agreements are steps toward a system of international human rights law that is agreed to by nations around the globe. By supporting this system, the United States
makes clear that despite its power, it is accountable to the core
values of democracy.
We must call for immediate resolution of the Israel/Palestinian
conflict as a world security measure.
U.S. must begin immediately to forge a respectful,
alliance-building dialogue with Middle East Muslim
communities and their governments. We must also begin to truly
listen to Middle East nations' suggestions for how to repair their
scarred relations with the United States, and to their suggestions
for how to address the anger that erupts in
terrorism. And President Bush must pledge to discontinue the
U.S.'s own violence-supporting actions across the Middle East.
We have the means, the ability and the will worldwide to eradicate
the root causes of terrorism. Let us put money into international
humanitarian aid, worldwide public education, and the nutrition
of starving peoples, and we will create an environment inhospitable
to terrorism and its proponents.
of military retaliation that endanger the lives of civilians
anywhere in the world are unacceptable. We cannot pay tribute
to the loss of innocent lives by taking more innocent lives. To
paraphrase Gandhi, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world
civil liberties of all people must be protected. We Americans
hold dear the democratic liberties granted to us by the US Constitution.
It would be tragic indeed if the events of September 11 were to
rob us not only of innocent lives, but of our cherished liberties.
I oppose any efforts to diminish our right to privacy and freedom
A commitment to peace with justice and love toward our brothers
and sisters around the world must be made. From the depths of
this horrific tragedy, we must rise up and become passionate advocates
of peace with justice and conflict resolution. Only love leads
to peace with justice, while hate takes us toward war and injustice.
