Ironically. Christina Greene 9 yrs of age was born 9/11. I still have no words for this, the pain is too near.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

May all the people who were killed be reborn in the Pure Lands. May all the people who were wounded recover fully. May the shooter come to a full understanding of the tragedy he unleashed, regret his actions and hate and heal his mind with love and kindness. May all mental illness and hatred be overcome with love, kindness and right action.

May the Buddha's ceaselessly rain down their blessings and inspiration to heal all beings and to create a peaceful and loving world.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
