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 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.
