Re: 9/11, an Aiki Perspective

Thanks for the eye-opener, Francis. Looking back on 9/11, and on the motives that terrorists had for that fateful attack, it reminds us of how such ventures often have opposite of the desired effect. Adversity can be a powerful means to unite and focus an entire people. This is not what the perpetrators sought, but it is what they got. If only it did not take such a radical and awful event to remind us to turn away the petty and unite for the common good. The world needs unity; it needs focus; it needs the Aiki spirit.
