Reflections on Tragedy and Triumph

By Tsvi Blanchard

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 26, 2001

The author describes his experiences on September 11th, 2001 and reflects on the attacks and their implications. He contends that a response to worldwide terror requires more than particular economic or military strategies, however necessary such strategies may be. Rather, he argues that a long-term response to terrorism demands a global vision grounded in the strongest power we know- love that takes us beyond ourselves. The author concludes by suggesting that it is perhaps time for us to acknowledge that love and solidarity are a better overall basis for society than acquisition, competition and domination.
