Today I remember the people who died in the attacks and think of their families who are left behind to grieve.
Today I think of the Canadian soldiers who have been killed in Afghanistan as a direct result of the ensuing "war on terror".
Today I think of people whose names I have never heard, in countries whose locations I barely know, who have been suffering and dying in endless wars long before September 11, 2001.
This did not begin on September 11, 2001 and it did not end on September 11, 2001.
I do not accept war.
