Below is a message from David Orpin sent to the subscribers of the Payment Practices mailing list. I do share his words...



Dear colleagues,



Please take a moment today to remember the victims of the terrible terrorist attack one year ago today in New York City, Washington, DC and Shanksville, Pennsylvania and in your own way say a short prayer for them. I am sure that many of you will have seen the TV specials recalling, especially, the attacks on the World Trade Center. I think television must be full of them just about everywhere in these days. I had to fight back the tears hearing some stories. I am sure some of you must have had similar difficulties. This date must never be forgotten. The victims must never be forgotten. Thank you.



David Orpin

Something I'd like to add. Sep 11, 2002

Remember ALL people dying from injustice and war. We\'ve seen the outcome of war. Far too often. War IS injustice. Let\'s pray for the return of understanding and peace - and try to stop EVERY upcoming war right before it\'s beginning. Stopping a war means not to fight.

But starting to THINK.

this is not a war, this is a genocide... Sep 12, 2002

In Russian there is a saying: (my fast rendering, sorry: those who raise the sword, will perish from it...).I believe this will happen, and sooner, the better.

If terrorists want to eliminate people, they are to be eliminated.

Prayers Sep 12, 2002

Personally I believe that the true perpetrators of suc deeds will never be cauht: all I can do is to pray for those who suffer as much as I pray for those who cause suffering.

The rule we have been using for the off-topic forum is that threads can cover any topic, as long as they are not controversial. Now that there is some discord showing in this one, I am locking the topic.



Peace.
