Shine a light on September 11th ...

In the week after Sept. 11th, 2001, thousands of Muslims, including many Iranians, lit candles for victims of terrorist acts in the USA. America has been such a bad neighbor since then, it's been easy to forget how much support she had worldwide in the immediate aftermath of these horrible crimes. This year, how about lighting a candle and putting it in your window in an act of solidarity and rememberance? Here's a website that talks about it: Light the Night for Peace and Friendship. I participated in this last year, too. If you're worried about catching your curtains on fire, battery-operated tea candles are fairly cheap and worry-free, plus they're great for candlelight vigils on windy days!
