911 : 1 Year On

I'm taking a train to KL at the time of your memorial service (http://www.thedailyenlightenment.com/911.htm), but could I please add this thought:

As we pause to remember those who died on September 11, 2001, let us also think about the much larger number who, according to United Nations statistics, die every single day of the year from the twin terrors of malnutrition and dirty water. For details, see the websites of the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (www.fao.org) and the United Nations Environment Programme (www.unep.org). -George Jacobs
In Samsara, any tragedy is not the only tragedy.
In Samsara, everybody needs Compassion.
In Samsara, when there is enough Compassion,
it ceases to be Samsara;
it becomes Pureland.
