Know that the memories of this horrific day hang just as heavily here in California, and around the world, as within blocks of the World Trade Center. Wherever innocent blood is shed in the name of ideology, there can be no end to pain and dread.

But, now more than ever, we need to show the world, and prove to ourselves, that we're a nation of fighters who have only just begun to fight--not against "terrorists," but against all those who try to hide behind slogans, and lies, as against any whose occupation is to fill our minds and hearts with fear and loathing while, at the same time, waving American flags.

The crimes of one diminishes all of humanity.
