thank you sammy for mentioning me in your article is this para

“Leaving there, I had a thought about a solution. I recently posted on YouTube (after I heard about the attacks on the Sikh Temple and its people) encouraging others to take an intelligent stance against acts of terrorism—not emotional, impulsive ones. I know there is the right and the left. Some who are on the border will use these events to push them to one side or the other of the issue. Some will justify not budging from their long-held, but poorly defined beliefs. Even worse, some will feel as if it’s not their battle or as my friend Tahir Malik, who suffered a horrible loss due to an act of terrorism—on October 05, 2009 his wife Gul Rukh Tahir was the first casualty when a suicide bomber blew himself up in the Country Office of the United Nations World Food Program, in Islamabad, Pakistan—said during the S|A|V|E event, “Some people will just turn the channel and do absolutely nothing.” My good friend James Shatzman mentioned a quote to me today. James is the Director of the Racine Community Re-entry program who welcomes and supports men and women back from incarceration in an effort to help them never offend again. He said, “Comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.”
