Pause to remember, move toward freedom

Many WILL BE PAUSING this week to remember the events of September 11, 2001. While reassessing the impact of the damage and response, it helps to keep in mind the immeasurable—the power of desire to keep moving toward something resembling a better world. The global silent majority is hungrier than ever for peace and order.

There was some small hint of a better world in the way the people of New York, Detroit, Cleveland, and other cities and villages responded to last month's Big Blackout in the northeastern US and Canada—in the calm and order that prevailed, in acts of kindness.

The recent suicide bombings in Jerusalem and Baghdad make it harder to detect the hints of hope for peace and peaceful transition. But the darker it gets, the more we yearn for light. The seeds of peace are there, in those cities, in the hearts of their people, as surely as the one Maker loves us as one creation.
