A Tribute to Mom

"No Time For Politics" Charles Gibson 1910

“To call women the weaker sex is a libel: it is man’s injustice to women. If by strength is meant brute strength, then indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not got greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her man would not be. If non-violence is the law of our being, the future is with women.”
–Mohandes Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)

And Justice For All

As the world receives the news that Osama Bin Laden is dead, and celebrations spontaneously erupt in the streets of America, the message of this courageous woman expresses the sentiments of many New Yorkers who lost loved ones on that fateful day of September 11, 2001. Many of us remember that morning as if it were only yesterday, with its beautiful clear blue skies and the crisp scent of autumn in the air, unaware of the shock and horrors that awaited us…….

Justice for My Husband

Posted: 05/ 2/11 12:52 AM ET

The news of the death of Osama bin Laden gives me a sense of long-awaited, meaningful closure.

Ten years since the senseless, heartless murder of my husband and 3,000 innocent others, final justice has been meted out — though not swift it is certainly sweet.

My 12-year-old daughter will wake tomorrow to a safer world, hopefully a more peaceful world. And that brings me a rare sense of relief.

And I am enormously grateful for the tireless effort and incredible courage and bravery of our counter-terrorism agents who for ten long years remained focused and undeterred in their mission to capture and kill Osama bin Laden.
