My Response to the killing of Osama bin Laden

Posted on May 2, 2011 at 8:55am 2 Comments

As someone who lost my Father to terrorism, I understand the response to hold one person responsible and to be jubilant when that person is killed. But I knew I would lose some of my humanity if I followed this route. I have found that healing and transformation happens when I understand the roots of the problem and address that non violently. otherwise the cycle of violence and revenge continues.

It was so inspiring to meet you and Archbishop Desmond Tutu to learn how the Forgiveness Project can make a bigger difference to heal millions of lives. My friend Dave will be in touch with you. Let us bring as many groups together to join forces. Here is one I was invited to join today to find way to mediate etc.

That would be great to meet up at St. James. We have so much to do to unleash mediation as our current systems are so flawed making Greedy Fat Cats richer.
Look forward to our meeting on Monday. Namaste.
