6          Acknowledgement by Harry Doig

I’d like us to take a moment to pause and remember the victims, around the world, of terrorism.  Acknowledge them, their families and friends. Recent events in France have put this horror squarely in front of us.  People in other countries, countries not as well covered by our media, have also suffered:

·           Somalia

·           Iraq

·           Beirut

·           Nigeria

·           Mali

 … to name those afflicted In the last month alone.  I acknowledge them.

Then, in the words of Martin Luther King:

“Somewhere somebody must have some sense.  Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness.  And it is all a descending spiral, ultimately ending in destruction for all and everybody.

Somebody must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate and the chain of evil in the universe.”
