Remembering 9/11

19th anniversary of September 11th

Friday, September 11, 2020, marks the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorists attacks on New York City, Shanksville, PA, and Arlington, VA.

As we mark this somber anniversary, let us especially pray for those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks, as well as for their families and friends who continue to mourn the loss of those with whom, just one day earlier, they had walked and talked; for those who so selflessly reached out to victims and survivors alike on that tragic day; for those brave first responders—fire fighters and physicians, police and military personnel and officials, clergy and counselors and coworkers—who risked their “all” to bring comfort and hope to friend and stranger alike; and for everyone still struggling to “make sense” of that which, by nature, is senseless.
