NOTE: The following text was originally written on September 17th, 2001, to record and comment on the significant feeling of global unity that was experienced in response to the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks on the United States of America. Many have noted that, if just for a moment, the majority of people with access to the news cried out in unison against this terrible act (and other negative events that preceded it, even in other countries). In light of recent events, it seemed relevant to bring the text out again, as a reminder of the possibilities for unity, fleeting as they are. Perhaps, someday, or maybe even from this day forward, the world will be even more united, especially for the good.
Peace be to the people of the world. Now is the time to unite, all nations – different people, yet all the same. Bring forth your children and your family, help us to build a new world. Look across the world, this tiny planet in a massive universe that is our home. See the faces of people just like you. We may believe different things, but just a single belief can bring together the people of this modern Babylon. May we overcome together and build a future together, not apart. Humanity deserves no less; we all deserve no less. This world is not a dream – it is real, people are real, death is real and certain. America will not forget its lost family as any nation would not forget their own families. If it be so, let this be the action that brings the world together, and if it shall be, it will only be because we can make it so.
Stand by your leaders. Leaders – unite around a common table. People of this great world, stand united.
