People from different backgrounds and faiths gathered in Northwest DC Sunday for “Unity Walk’ to remember the victims of 9/11 and to unite.

The event started at the Sikh Temple at 3801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW. After the opening ceremony, participants walked to the Islamic Center for a short presentation about community service. Afterwards, participants continued to the Gandhi Memorial near Dupont Circle, where the walk ended.

Organizers say the walk had added meaning today. Florida Pastor Terry Jones- who previously threatened to burn a Quran - told the "Today Show" yesterday that he'd changed his mind.

Organizers say the way people from different faiths took a stand against the burning reaffirms today's goal for the walk - putting aside differences to learn more about each other.
