Seventh Anniversary of Iraq War

KansasCity.com: On anniversary of 9/11, focus on peace, healing. Ira Harritt weighs in.

The pain, anger and hatred still smoldering from the construction of a Muslim community center near ground zero in New York City shows how people still struggle with the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy.

Events this week and next in Kansas City can help people heal from a culture of war created by the terrorist attack and nine years of fighting in Afghanistan and seven years in Iraq. AFSC's Ira Harritt weighs in.
