. September 11th Commemoration Statement
Our Grief is Not a Cry for War
We watched in horror. Stood transfixed before the TV. Frantically called
friends and loved ones. Walked through the streets, ashen-faced, staring at
the posters of missing. Mourned the dead. Comforted the living. Grieved. Asked why.
We remember. And still we say...
Our grief is NOT a cry for war.
NOT a license to attack anywhere and anyone the president sees fit.
NOT a call for roundups and detentions of immigrants.
NOT a demand for neighborhood spy networks.
NOT a forfeit of our right to question... or of our responsibility to
Join us in saying NOT IN OUR NAME and taking the Pledge of Resistance, Sunday, Oct. 6, in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and other locations.
(Oct. 6 is the anniversary eve of the day U.S. bombs began dropping on
Afghanistan one year ago.)
