Nine eleven brings sad memories of a shocking attack. The haunting memories of 9/11 terrorist attack, that occurred twelve years ago, are still torturing the world. A call that echoed in America 120 years ago called for a universal brotherhood that should end all bloodshed and terrorism.

Nine eleven brings sad memories of a shocking attack. The haunting memories of 9/11 terrorist attack, that occurred twelve years ago, are still torturing the world. Is the world free from such attacks that are hanging over the head of everyone as the sword of Damocles.

Even after 12 years

Even after twelve years the world is not yet free from the shock of such terrorist attacks. Rather, it is threatened more by terrorism and fear of wars. The late American president John F. Kennedy compared the omnipresent threat of nuclear annihilation to the sword of Damocles hanging over the people of the world.

A call that echoed in America 120 years ago

The world might have forgotten the call that echoed exactly 120 years ago in 1893, on this day 11 September, on this American soil. Swami Vivekanada, a Hindu sage from India, called the world for the new concept of "Universal Brotherhood", only which can save the world from the tyranny of terrorism and other threats.

At the World Parliament of Religions held in Chicago, Swami Vivekananda spoke about humanity’s history of violence and his hopes for its end by his call for a "universal brotherhood". He indicated that sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth and pointed out how they have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization and sent whole nations to despair. He also mentioned that had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would have been far more advanced than it is now.

Nine Eleven of 12 and 120 years ago should make humanity think

Swami Vivekananda's message of the 1800's for a fraternal life of love is as timely and fitting reminder now, even in the 2000's. It is high time for the world to follow a path of both tolerance and universal acceptance.

Nine Eleven of 12 and 120 years ago should make humanity think

It is high time for the whole humanity to view these events of 9/11 positively and find real solutions for an amicable and peaceful life. Of course, it is difficult. But if minds are focused towards peace, it can be achieved. Otherwise, it is certain that there will be more bloodshed, more loss, and the whole earth may become a complete graveyard.

For all mankind to live in peace, love and harmony might be possible in an ideal world, but not possible in the real world we live in. It's a worthy goal to pursue, but as long as men remain human, it's not an achievable goal, sad to say.

perhaps you talk of mankind...for the human is in contact with higher consciousness...the beast is always in man to be dealt with...

Thank you dear VP for a snippet from history. Wars excite us but peace seems to be boring! We humans are capable of living in peace and we retract our steps after reaching the brink like in the Cuban crisis. We test others's patience, needle them. The world can go on without us and being at the helm we have a duty to live and let others live. We have knowledge at fingertips but need wisdom too! siva
