“These days I sense in myself a muted, almost inexplicable unease. The cause is not just global warming and a frail economy, but a shadowy sense that right now, just under the skin of public awareness, something terrible is occurring. . . bombs kill more civilians than terrorists. . . The fear of being attacked together with a sense of powerlessness disables our empathy with those that are being maimed and killed now. But the tide can be turned. Once we acknowledge the mutual danger we are in, the sleeping power of civilians all over the world can rise to stop these attacks, which are aimed in the end at all of us.” (Transforming Terror: Remembering the Soul of Terror, 2011, pp. 9, 15; photo susangriffin.com)
