    Our Voices Together is a network started by 9/11 families and friends and joined by others who choose to respond to terrorism with positive global outreach. There is no single antidote to terrorism. The work our law enforcement, intelligence, military, diplomats and others are doing is vital. However, citizens also have a crucial role. The war against terror is a long one, and as American families reach out to families around the world, we can help make a better, safer world.

Other fuel thirsty steps include packaging, warehousing, and refrigeration. ..If every U.S. citizen ate just one meal (any meal) composed of locally and organically raised meats and produce, we would reduce our country's oil consumption by over 1.1 million barrels of oil every week."
