911 Anniversary

9.11 8 years ago was a devastating day not only for the Americans but for everyone of us who cares about lives. We learned and saw it with our own eye how powerful and destructive human nature could be if it were to channeled towards the wrong side. When I mentioned wrong, I don't mean the teachings of their religions, but their attitudes towards humanity.
Today, 8 years has passed. What have we learned from this incident? Great majority of us have learned the Islamic extremists are the bad hats, they are the cold-blooded killers that kill the innocents, they are the trouble to the world security, they live in their own world, they this, they that...
And we forgot they are human being just like you & me.
Technically speaking, we are no difference. We are capable of committing crime many times worse when we look back the moment when we were mad at something or somebody. And we are also capable of total devotion to certain values that we could give up anything for that. What I am saying is that everyone of us do have these potentials in us. Just that we are conscious enough to choose and manifest the better values. The greatest value will be the manifestation of this limitless potential in us called Buddhahood.
IN his writings to his disciples, Nichiren Daishonin mentioned about evil people will attain enlightenment through the Mystic Law. This underlines the fact that we are all the same and capable of attaining enlightenment through this great Law. What is this great Law then? It is none other than realizing our limitless Buddhahood potential in us and manifesting it and lead a meaningful and fulfilled life. "They" too can do it.
8 years has passed. Has the 911 incident dividing us further or binding us closer?
