After the London Bombings - Stronger Resolve  

:: Thursday, July 07, 2005 ::

I've had this kind of morning before. The only difference is that I'm not physically close to the carnage, whereas on Sept.11, I was close enough to both the PA plane crash and NYC to be forever imprinted with two things - unity with people who work for peace and a stronger realization that terrorist attacks will never change the minds of those who are in control of our governments.

The reaction of President George Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair was to inject their own personal resolve with a new infusion of justification for their choices.

What the bombings in London, and other surprise attacks like it do is scare the daylights out of innocent people who are trying to figure out how to pay for next week's food bill or buy shoes for their kids. Terrorists belive it is only fair to hurt these people, as if this empowers them somehow. Where some men see power, I see cowardice.

Clearly, those behind these attacks believe it is their only form of effectively communicating to the world. And clearly, their message is getting across rather well, to the dead and injured, who can not help them and whose family and friends have been offered no logical reason to respond to this evil in a positive way. What sort of response is expected from a violent act?

Return violence. And a stronger resolve to not tolerate threats. Rather, the traditional way is to respond with new threats that end up hurting more people who want to live or are not involved in the conflict.

My sincerest respect goes to those in London who are involved in any way with helping their friends, family and strangers next to them, who are trying to figure out the best, safest way to get home. I admire your courage in the face of a living hell.
