This post came in my box today. Seems like a wonderful way to gether with friends and family in support of Peace.
September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows invites you to:
Please join us in creating Circles of Hope to commemorate the two-year anniversary of our loved ones deaths on September 11. We plan to encircle the World Trade Center site with a candlelight vigil on the night of September 10, 2003. Gather with us in New York City or create a Circle of Hope candlelight vigil in your own community and register it on our website.
We will also be providing materials on our website for discussion circles to explore the psychological and political impact of 9/11 on ourselves, our communities and our world.
Why Circles of Hope?
In the immediate aftermath of the tragedy of September 11th, 2001, expressions of sympathy and solidarity with the victims poured in from people all over the world. As the victims' family members, we witnessed and received extraordinary acts of compassion. Many visualized a phoenix of peace arising from the ashes of the crash sites.
But at the same time, a climate of fear emerged, preventing deep discussion of issues surrounding the tragedy, and driving apart people with diverging visions of how to respond to 9/11. We can overcome this fear and rekindle the hope by recognizing that real security comes through our common desire for healing in our fragmented world.
Components of the Circles of Hope:
€ Join us in New York, or create a Circle of Hope candlelight vigil in your community on the night of September 10, 2003.
€ Create a discussion circle in your community to explore issues surrounding September 11. A discussion circle guide and materials will be available on our website by August 1, 2003.
