A Poetry in Motion. Lincoln's Fields. By Byron Kocen.

Bright, faithful sun,
show the path
where soldiers never die.

Dry the tears
from Lincoln's fields
where bones of young men lie.

Hush the clang
of armor's steel
glistening in your light.

Help us all
to save our souls
to tell the wrong from right.

Still the drum
within with heart

Unjustified War" A message for the President of the United States of America. By Bishop T. Nasir.

How bad any regime may be, no one has any right to impose its will of the people of any independent and sovereign state any where in the world. We do sympathize with America and the victims of "terrorist attacks" on 11th September 2001. Yet we believe that fighting terrorism with greater terrorism

WHO IS DR. STEPHEN GILL? By G.S. Chauhan, ed. Predesi Panjab.

I remember the evening vividly. It was cold. Stephen Gill was giving a talk to a literary gathering in Mississauga, Ontario about his writing technique.

Christian Women's Experience on Christian Muslim marriage. Part 11. By Jeanne Swartz.

Thank you so much for posting my entire letter on PCC. Because I chose to remain anonymous I was not sure if the letter would actually get posted or perhaps only in parts.

Ahmed and Cook different in names, same in deed. By Swaali

Professor Ashtiaq takes delight in making ignorant remarks about the heads of two great nations, namely US and UK. They are worse than moron and are delirious, impatient, are some of the ways Ashtiaq describes them. It's curious that some Pakistan papers pour out similar invectives.
