Pursuing Peace

by Chris Koellhoffer, IHM, September 11, 2016

Today, the fifteenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks that claimed so many innocent lives in the United States, we pause once again to remember.  In that remembering, we hold in tenderness and prayer our sisters and brothers everywhere in the world who have also known what it is to have loved ones brutally taken by acts of violence.

Rather than post a new blog today, I invite you to revisit my post of August 14, 2016, Right Here, Right Now.  Pair this reflection, written after I spent a summer day in 2016 at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, with the prayer written soon after September 11, 2001 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat:  Rest in Peace: September 11, 2001, a spiritual perspective on the World Trade Center tragedy written as an “I Am” prayer poem.

Takeaway

May we dedicate this day and all the days to come to pursuing the path of peace.
