Securing safety through a change of heart

From the September 30, 1996 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Recent terrorist attacks around the world are particularly poignant reminders of the need to feel safe. Is the answer in an increased police presence, technologically advanced security measures, heightened surveillance of extremist groups? These may be necessary interim measures, but the way to protect ourselves as well as society at large from terrorist and criminal activity, and to reform such behavior, is through a profound change in the way each of us individually thinks about God and our fellowman.
