WHY ARE Christians, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus and others gathering in Northwest Philadelphia on June 3 to call for peace in our world and on our streets? Sadly, the answers are not hard to find: At home, Philadelphians are mourning the deaths of record-setting numbers of our youth and other citizens to street violence. With Virginia and the nation, we grieve over the murder of dozens of college students who died from senseless violence. Abroad, we witness with horror the protracted wars in the Middle East, Darfur, Afghanistan and other places.

Donald Trump didn't say "Ivana her back," but he is saying, "There's always a chance for a reconciliation. " As his wife, Ivana, and their three children, Donald Jr., 12; Ivancka, 8, and Eric, 6, were expected back from a Florida weekend today, Trump stayed in New York City. "I have a wonderful family, wonderful wife, wonderful children," he said. "But sometimes in life people grow apart, and it happens, and it's an unfortunate situation. But there's always a chance - when you feel as I do, and as Ivana does, there's always a chance for a reconciliation.

Shaking hands and awkwardly introducing themselves to one another, members of the Arab American and Jewish American communities in Philadelphia met yesterday at City Hall, echoing the reconciliation of the historic Palestinian self-rule treaty signed with Israel. At a reception organized by the Philadelphia Arab-American Association, they popped champagne corks and smiled at one another as television cameras rolled. Just weeks before, after the massacre at the Hebron mosque, many of them had stood eyeball to eyeball outside the Israeli Consulate in Center City, shouting slogans and imprecations at one another.

Many religious leaders and antiwar groups remain steadfast in urging peace and reconciliation rather than revenge. Some warn that responding in kind will be the ultimate victory for the terrorists - by making us like them. "We can deny them their victory by refusing to submit to a world created in their image," said a statement released by the National Council of Churches and signed by 210 religious leaders as of Friday night. "Terrorism inflicts not only death and destruction but also emotional oppression to further its aims.

DEAR ABBY: I cut my father out of my life years ago, after he declared he could not support my decision to adopt three children from a Russian orphanage with my longtime companion. The adoption announcement coincided with my "coming out" to Dad, who is now married to his third wife. This year on Father's Day, I sent him a card and he replied by email that he was glad to hear from me and he hoped for a reconciliation, but was not sure how to go about it. I responded by email that I was cautiously optimistic that we could reignite a respectful relationship.

On Day 17, a smiling Jean-Bertrand Aristide addressed the United Nations in New York, promising that 11 days hence, he would return to Haiti to reclaim his interrupted presidency. It was a day of symbolism, hope and almost cosmic coincidence yesterday, rich with both reminders of the unfinished business in Haiti - and how much the political landscape there has changed. Only hours before Mr. Aristide bestrode his U.N. podium, his nemesis - Port-au-Prince Police Chief Michel Francois - fled the country in his four- wheel-drive Jeep, having seen how rudely his police and paramilitary henchmen had been rousted by American troops.

A Presbyterian minister a few years ago succeeded in getting young Presbyterians and Roman Catholics to hash out their differences at small church gatherings in Belfast, Northern Ireland. But when the minister took over a Presbyterian church in County Monaghan, a border county in the Republic of Ireland, his congregation there rejected the idea. "He couldn't develop similar reconciliation meetings," said Roz Stirling, chief of youth programs for the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.

The thing about Paul Reiser is, just when you think you can't stand another lame, vulgar, obvious scene he's written, he blindsides you with some real insight or character truth. That doesn't exactly make "The Thing About My Folks," the movie Reiser scripted and stars in, a success. But for a movie aimed at an undemanding, elderly demographic, it is a plus. This is a cross-generational reconciliation thing, designed to please sentimentalists and those who think that Peter Falk passing gas is just the funniest thing ever.

Every time Rabbi Linda Holtzman begins to tap out an e-mail starting with the words "I'm sorry," she stops for a moment to question her intentions. "I think, 'Am I doing this because I'm afraid to call the person, or because it really is the quickest way?' " For Jews, it is the season for such self-examination, a period of reflection, forgiveness and reconciliation that began before Rosh Hashanah and culminates tomorrow on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. "It's funny to think of forgiveness as seasonal," says Holtzman, rabbi of Reconstructionist congregation Mishkan Shalom in Roxborough.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Long story short, my boyfriend of over a year broke up with me three weeks ago. For a few reasons, our "future" is up in the air while he figures his issues out. This is where I'm having my own issues, aside from being pretty devastated by the breakup itself. While I would be so happy to be back together right now, I'm trying to deal with things as if we are broken up for good. The only way I know how to deal with that is to completely cut someone out of my life, though.

LONDON - A truth and reconciliation program is the "only way" to rid cycling of performance-enhancing drugs, and the sport's governing body should have no role in the process, Lance Armstrong said in an interview with a British publication. Cyclingnews on Wednesday published questions and answers it exchanged with Armstrong through e-mails and texts. In an interview two weeks ago with Oprah Winfrey, the cyclist acknowledged for the first time that he doped to win a record seven Tour de France titles.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My brother and his now-fiancee "ruined" my wedding day by (her) causing a huge scene at my reception. We never received apologies, and have heard they're telling people we exaggerated what happened that day, and that we're just as much to blame (completely false). Since then, my brother became engaged to this wretched woman, and now wants me to help him prep for his big day. We haven't spoken much since my wedding. I can't get over that they won't even acknowledge wrongdoing.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal has decided not to seek another term, the movement said Saturday, paving the way for a possible leadership contest at a time when the anti-Israeli Islamic group faces far-reaching decisions on whether to stay the course of militancy or moderate. However, Hamas suggested Mashaal could be asked to stay on, in what would be a boost for his more pragmatic line. Mashaal could not be reached for comment Saturday, but his decision not to seek another term as head of Hamas' political bureau was confirmed in a Hamas statement.

Question: My wife of a decade is leaning toward filing for divorce. I think our problems are easily surmountable, but she is less hopeful. Despite her skepticism, she believes reconciliation is possible. We've begun counseling, we're communicating reasonably well, and we express love for each other. For months my wife (a procrastinator) has said she wants to get separated, both for "space" to help with reconciliation and as a possible prelude to no-fault divorce. She's finally getting her own place.

WHEN I heard a radio segment about Blessmefather.com recently, it sounded incredible. Upon discovering that this was the subject of Christine Flowers' column last week, my reaction was: "You go, girl!" Knowing our esteemed columnist, she probably wouldn't mince words conveying why the Sacrament of Reconciliation should not be reduced to a technical application. Interestingly, of the many comments posted online, one reader offered a unique perspective that rendered a "mea culpa" moment for me. In a nutshell, the reader said Blessmefather.

Dear Amy: Almost seven years ago, my wife of 24 years learned that I had a 10-year affair with her closest friend. I had ended that relationship, but then I had a two-year affair with another friend of hers. (Affair partner No. 1 exposed my second affair to my wife.) I moved out, my wife divorced me, and our two grown kids were traumatized and disappointed in me, but chose to see that I was horribly ashamed of my behavior and forgave me. My former wife and I continued in therapy with the hopes of reconciliation.

On Mother's Day 1985, Michael Nutter was back in his old neighborhood. He had grown up at 55th and Larchwood, not quite a mile due east of the MOVE rowhouse on Osage Avenue. He had friends and family who lived even closer. That morning, Nutter attended services at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia, where the Rev. Albert F. Campbell advised the congregation of heightened police activity near the MOVE house. Nutter, then 27 and an aide to City Councilman Angel Ortiz, decided to see for himself.

Putting Reagan on the $50 bill Thanks for Steven Conn's engaging commentary on President Ulysses Grant and the puzzling proposal to replace his image with President Ronald Reagan's on the $50 bill ("Ulysses' usurpers," Friday). As we approach the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, adjustments to the $50 Federal Reserve note could be especially meaningful, particularly if they addressed the North-South reconciliation that Grant failed to achieve. Enforced reconstruction is one thing; an agreed-upon reconciliation - "with malice toward none" - quite another.
