Click here to find PT’s official statement in reaction to the killing of Bin Laden on our website. It reads as follows:
“As we consider the killing of Osama Bin Laden, our thoughts turn not only to our family members who were killed on September 11th, but to all of the innocent people around the world who have died, and continue to die, as a result of the events of September 11th, 2001.
It is our hope that the rule of law, underpinned by our Constitution that was so terribly strained in the name of September 11th will again become the guiding light of our policies at home and abroad. One person may have played a central role in the September 11th attacks, but all of us have a role to play in returning our world to a place of peace, hope and new possibilities. We hope that process will begin today.”

Meet one of our new members, Anne Lynn Hayashi, who joined PT in February 2011. Lynn now says:
“I found a reference to your site through one of the several 9/11 family groups. I started reading about your organization and the good work you do, and was very happy to find a family-member organization that represented my views: I am not for using violence against innocent people around the world by encouraging new wars. For me, the year ahead is about how to handle the 9/11’s tenth anniversary in connection to the war in Iraq and the new wars in the Middle East.”
