A stark reality that lurks behind all the dignified ceremonies that are taking place in many countries on this fateful day.

Those who died so terribly will never be forgotten - and we must stand shoulder to shoulder with the families now and for evermore. But soon the world must look beyond the horror.
Finding cures for the world's conflicts and ills is an ever-daunting task. But always there has to be a search for answers.
For repetitions of the carnage that blitzed Manhattan, Washington and a field in Pennsylvania, would push the world towards an abyss too dreadful to contemplate.
