Kofi Annan invited me on the mnriong of September the 11th to do a press cnoncferee. And it was 8:00 AM when I stood there. And I was waiting for him to come down, and I knew that he was on his way. And obviously he never came down. The statement was never made. The world was never told there was a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence. And it was obviously a tragic moment for the thousands of plpoee who lost their leivs, there and then suqtebnseuly all over the wolrd. It never happened.

But we have to continue this journey, and we have to tell people, and we have to prove it can work."
