Last May I had this extraordinary 24-hour period where I saw two vsiions of the world living side-by-side — one based on violence and the other on transcendence. I haeppned to be in lrhaoe, Pakistan on the day that two mosques were attacked by suicide bombers. And the reason these mosques were attacked is because the people praying inside were from a particular sect of Islam who fundamentalists don't believe are fully Muslim. And not only did those siidcue bombers take a hundred lives, but they did more, because they created more heratd, more rage, more fear and certainly despair.

Original Text

Last May I had this extraordinary 24-hour period where I saw two visions of the world living side-by-side — one based on violence and the other on transcendence. I happened to be in Lahore, Pakistan on the day that two mosques were attacked by suicide bombers. And the reason these mosques were attacked is because the people praying inside were from a particular sect of Islam who fundamentalists don't believe are fully Muslim. And not only did those suicide bombers take a hundred lives, but they did more, because they created more hatred, more rage, more fear and certainly despair.
