While the government of the United States and the international community try to get a political settlement on track, the blood continues to flow. There is, as yet, no dialogue between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Though a terrorist attack may demolish tall buildings, it will never succeed in leveling the spirits or the values that America represents.
This country will most certainly keep moving forward. Justice will prevail and healing will take place. Americans -- black, white, Chicanos, Orientals, Christians, Jews, Muslims -- must speak with one voice that we are 100 percent behind our government in finding and punishing those responsible for this heinous act. The terrorists attack is indeed against the values that America symbolizes (i.e. our freedom and the hope that America offers to those who come to its shores). Our prayers and tears are for those heroic and innocent people and their families who were casualties of this crime.
