Anniversary of September 11 Terror Attacks is a Time for Prayer and Reflection


Papua New Guinea  Prime Minister Peter O’Neill  has asked Papua New Guineans to pause and reflect on the horror of terrorism on the fifteenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States.
“Terrorism is an unfortunate reality and has been for the history of the modern world in one form or another,” the Prime Minister said.
"With every generation new threats evolve and we rely on our security forces to be vigilant and proactive.

“Today, people around the world mourn the deaths of 3,000 people on September 11 in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania in 2001.
“Those killed in the September 11 terror attacks were from all religions and from many countries.
“This was senseless murder and plunged the world into more than a decade of war that is still continuing.”

The Prime Minister said terrorism rises from numerous factors and all must be considered, but with the response being firm.
“There can be no excuse for those who carry out acts of terror.
“As a global community we must work together to deal with the mitigating factors, and as a global community we must be strong in our response to those who will commit or plan acts of terror.”
The Prime Minister said today is not for politics, but for reflection on those who were lost on September 11 in 2001 and the thousands who have also died in other terror attacks.
“May we as a community in our nation, pray for the families that have lost loved-ones to terrorism, and may the acts of terror be reduced in our time.”
