    Sorrow re: WTC Disaster

    I am simply writing to say how sorry I am about the 9-11 disaster. What a terrible thing to happen! I don't understand how anyone could do such as thing, but then again, maybe I should be glad I don't. I think one would have to actually be a terrorist to understand such things.
    I do pray that people of the Muslim faith are not considered terrorists because of this. Think about it...Back in the early part of the last millennium, England sent out crusaders to spread Christianity. These "Christians" murdered and tortured their enemies. Not very Christ-like, was it? Certainly not what we modern day Christians would do. To call all Muslims terrorists would be similar to calling all Christians murdering crusaders. It's wrong.
    What a small population of fanatics have done should not be considered to be the fault of many loving, peaceful, and friendly people. I pray that hate will die, just as terrorism will. Peace, my friends, to all of you, and God bless you.
