The Center of Concern issued a special statement immediately after 9-11 through its newsletter, Center Focus.  After expressing grief, condolence, and prayer, it entreated the nation: "as the days pass and the healing begins, we urge the nation’s leaders from all walks of life to help us to grow in our understanding of the underlying factors that have brought this terror and tragedy into our lives, so that we can work more insightfully, more tirelessly, and more effectively for a world in which the peace of justice will be available to every person and terror will be no more.
