Pema Chodron, Buddhist nun, on 9/11.

Pema Chodron points out that our response to the attacks of 9/11 is directly analogous to how most of us, most of the time, deal with aggression in our daily lives. Instead of looking within at why we’ve provoked anger in others, we strike back. Right or wrong, as we all too well know, it just winds up escalating and complicating everything more—instead of, as we might wish, achieving happiness and peace for ourselves (or anyone else).
