The peace movement that marches this day includes the extraordinary people of Peaceful Tomorrows
, "an advocacy organization founded by family members of September Eleventh victims. Its mission is to seek effective nonviolent responses
to terrorism, and identify a commonality
with all people similarly affected by violence throughout the world. By conscientiously exploring peaceful options
in our search for justice, we choose to spare additional innocent families the suffering that we have already experienced—as well as to break the endless cycle of violence and retaliation
engendered by war."
