Last week, a friend was driving her son to college, getting him ready for his first year. While on the way, the radio mentioned the upcoming tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. In the conversation about those attacks, she realized that he has, at best, a dim memory of the world before Sept. 11. He doesn’t remember a time when the country he lived in was not at war.
Join us for a walking meditation on peace in collaboration with the Peace Flag Project and Providence Water Fire. As part of the RI Month for Peace activities surrounding the 10th anniversary of September 11th and International Peace Day September 21st, the annual Buddhist walking meditation will take place this year as part of the Sept. 24th Water Fire. The walk will be led by local interfaith leaders.
Assemble at 6:30 pm at the Waterplace Park Basin. Walkers can purchase and carry Candle Luminaria as they walk slowly and in silence.
