    ArticleAlmost Sunset at the 9/11 Memorial

    Sunday was incredibly beautiful—bright, warm, dry—one of those days that happen all too infrequently in New York City. I had just walked the streets of lower Manhattan in the 9/11 Unity Walk, co-sponsored by Intersections, Religions for Peace USA and the Interfaith Center of NY.

    ArticleEstablish Justice

    Where were you 50 years ago?  I was an 18 year-old sitting in my sister’s living room in El Paso, Texas watching the March on Washington on her big black and white TV.
