12 September is Interdependence DayOn September 11th, as the World Trade Center began to crumble, one of greatest examples of interdependence ever was on television screens around the world. Interdependence was already obvious in the harsh realities of global warming, HIV, terrorism, crime and unregulated global capitalism. However, on that day the world saw that the problems of one region are not simply isolated issues, but that our problems are interconnected. Furthermore, the world saw that security was not something guaranteed by power. September 11th is the day we look back, we mourn the ones that we have lost. The 12th "we celebrate the living so that tomorrow we can embrace those who are not yet born."
