September 11, 2002
We mourn the senseless and tragic loss of nearly 3000 young adult lives on
September 11, 2001.
We mourn the senseless and tragic loss of over six times as many young adult
lives since September 11, 2001, lives lost merely because these individuals
lacked health insurance.
We mourn for the potential consequences of an arrogance of national leaders
who would rationalize the preemptive destruction of lives, as if that were a
good and noble effort.
Let’s pledge to do all we can as a nation to prevent any further senseless
premature loss of lives, here or anywhere, regardless of the cause.
