We're Not Afraid!

Great new site "We're Not Afraid!" - a wonderful pictorial blog in which people express their intention not to be intimidated by terrorism. A powerful expression of non-violent resistance. Check it out here.

Gary, While I agree with your sentiments and the sentiments of this site perhaps its defiance is not really helpful. Maybe, unless we are a little afraid we won't reflect on the arrogant way we live in the West. Flaunting our Hollywood violence, overly sexualised media, prosperity, consumerism, materialism, etc. It feels to me like the "we're not afraid" idea is falling right into the goals of globalisation and the spread of Americanisation? Perhaps then blind defiance we should do some reflection on the way that we live? Not that I would want to support any place for terrorism one bit but perhaps the West's defiance isn't the solution either? I maen people don't fly planes into buildings for no reason. Maybe we should reflect on why they might do this? Andrew
