9/11 is the dark black day in the history of modern era. The immense consequences of the attack will haunt us forever. After New York, blast in Bali, Mumbai and repeated attack in Kashmir, there is no end. Every nation is in grip of terrorism, despite this combined efforts are not being taken by us to curb and eliminate terrorism due to personal interests of the US. The US is on personal vendetta against Iraq and others, but US lack the spirit to come forward to join hands with other countries in the matter. History repeats itself and we commit mistakes. Let us pledge on the eve of 9/11 to forget personal vendetta to join hands across the universe to eliminate terrorism before it eats us completely.
