More Love on 9/11 Anniversary

As I sit here this morning I'm very aware of the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy.  We all remember it very clearly, don't we?  I'll add a clip of Tim O'Brien singing his very moving song "More Love."  Let us increase our love, understanding, wisdom, and raise our consciousness, and let's decrease ignorance, racism, hate, religious extremism, and the idea that it's "us against them."  There is no "them,"  there is only "us," because we all live on this planet together and we need to stop killing each other for stupid reasons.  

"Just look out around you, people fightin' their wars
They think they'll be happy, when they settle their scores
Let's lay down the weapons
That hold us a part
Be still for just a minute
Try to open our heart

More love, I can hear our hearts cryin'
More love, I know that's all we need
More love to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If there's ever an answer, it's more love "    --Tim O'Brien
