My Brother’s Death (English, Italian and Spanish)

To the Editor:

Since my brother died on Sept. 11, 2001, his death has been used to justify the deaths of thousands of Afghan men, women and children. His death has been used to justify the possible pre-emptive strike against Iraq. His death has been used to justify the rounding up and incarceration of many ordinary citizens of Islamic heritage, all in the name of making America safer.

I don’t feel safer, and if you ask most Americans, neither do they.

And now the steel removed from the World Trade Center is going to be used to build a Navy warship (Metro Briefing, Dec. 26) to bring death to countless others. Is there no end to this senseless killing our country is embarked on?
