There is no mystery, at least not the kind you want. In real life there are no fogbound moors or clues on matchbooks or fifth columnists waiting to be unmasked. it would be nice if here were, because then there would be solutions to things in life, but it doesn't always work that way. Everyone likes a good detective story. I went through my Hammett phase in college. I think the attraction is, in life our mysteries aren't exciting. You know They're just intractable and depressing and enervating. Like, why do we always hurt the ones we love. Where does the money go ...in a detective story, at least the universe makes sense. It was him. He did it. The natural order is disturbed, but the beauty of it is that it's restored again.

Rogers Turrentine

Thirteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, one of the most tragic and horrifying events in human history shook our world. Not only America, but the whole world lost her innocence that precise moment, when a dirty, disgusting face of mass terrorism emerged to brutally torture the mankind. The world realized that this new evil is perpetrated by shameless barbaric fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life. America became stronger than ever before to fight the terrorism, and wiped out a major chunk of psychopathic terrorist evil to make our world safer once again. At the 13th anniversary of 9/11, our heart still aches for all those innocent lives who were ruthlessly killed by terrorist activities. It's so sad, depressing, disgusting story, and yet its aftermath is remarkably inspirational when we think about how America and many nations came together to relentlessly destroy the axis of evil, capture and bring to justice the toxic terrorists - including their leader Osama. On this 13th Anniversary, we pay our respectful tribute to the martyrs of 9/11 attack, and sincerely thank our awesome American Heroes who are still fighting those freaky fanatic terrorists to make our world a better place. God Bless You All, and God Bless America.

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

Susan Polis Schutz

To me, Good Friday represents one of the most important events in the evolution of religious beliefs and humanity, not only for Christianity but for mankind in general, for it represents the greatest sacrifice by Jesus Christ as much as the exceptional suffering and passion in Jesus Christ’s‘ life. This sentence by Jesus Christ, “Father, forgive them they know not what they do.“, signifies the ultimate and the highest level of forgiving despite the venomous actions and horrible sins of enemies. Good Friday is the special day for meditation on the sufferings and sacrifices made by Jesus Christ for mankind, and most importantly, for gathering the strength to forgive one’s worst enemies regardless of their unacceptable actions.

Today, I am pleased to share the best knowledge and philosophy for life, from Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna. It is as follows: “The man who sees me in everything and everything within me will not be lost to me, nor will I ever be lost to him. He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being; wherever he goes, he remains in me. When he sees all being as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga.”

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Two roads may diverge in a yellow wood, and I - I will choose neither one. Instead I'll create my own road to follow my own convictions and dreams. After all, any road is only a road - unless and until you make something of it. Just like that Life is full of choices, and yet Life is also what you make of it. Every learning and every wisdom that I will gain in my journey, will leave the leaves trodden black. And that's what will make the difference.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
