A Moment of Silence, in respect and memory for the victims, families, and colleagues of the attack 09-11-01Sites all over the world are coming together in a Moment of Silence [1], community, tributes, and to share information, express concern and offer love, support, prayers, and community.

We can show the world how we are all interconnected, that we're one world, one community. We will become stronger, not weaker. We will not retreat but will gather together. Terrorism will not defeat us. Instead we will gain renewed energy.

If you have a site paying tribute in some way, here are some sites where you can have yours listed.

If you have a community site to be added to the above list, please contact me and I'll add it to the above list. Let's spread the word. Thank you.

Others Coming Together off the Web
Communities all over the world are helping out in many ways. Volunteers are selflessly giving of their time and effort. And prayer communities are gathering as well.

"If we are to know a better and more secure world, then through our thoughts and actions we must counteract the negativity that seeks to undermine it."

Sri Daya Mata
Self-Realization Fellowship
