Peace and Reconciliation

Further to the Mountain Meadows story, I was struck by this article.

Can you imagine, in 144 years' time perhaps, families of the victims of the 2001 9/11 attacks getting together with families of those who carried out the atrocity to make a quilt?

Sadly, neither can I, though real life continues to astonish me.

The Mormons clearly suffered similar prejudice to that suffered today by American Muslims.

It did occur to me to wonder what surviving family members the September 11th 2001 terrorists might have left, so I fired up Google and found this. It contains a link to a PDF of the programme's script which looks interesting. Also this in a similar vein.

So a fair way to go on both sides. Though in a century or so it may all seem very different.
