Peacewalk Pilgrimage to Commemorate September 11th
On September 11th 2004 you are invited to participate in a solemn walk for peace.
The Islamic Center of New Mexico, Congregation Nahalat Shalom, The Muslim-Jewish PeaceWalk, the Center for Peace and Justice, Hillel at UNM, the Muslim Students Association of UNM, Hearts of Peace, the Out ch'Yonda Theatre Company and other communities and individuals concerned with the escalation of violence in our world will walk on a pilgrimage of prayer between the Islamic Center, the Center for Peace and Justice and Hillel at UNM to give witness to our conviction that peace is possible.
We mourn the tragic loss of life in so many places around the world, especially the children.
We pray for the families and friends of those who lost their lives in the flames of September 11th and for those who gave their lives trying to save others.
On this day of sadness and memory, we especially pray for the people of Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine that they may know peace and justice in our day.
We, who walk today, place our trust not in military might, but in the human capacity for love and justice as the true pathway to peace.
The PeaceWalk will begin at the Islamic Center of New Mexico at 8:00 am, then proceed to the Peace and Justice Center on Silver and Harvard, and then to the UNM Campus.
The total walk is less than 2 miles, so we encourage all to participate in this walk of prayer for peace. This is not a march or protest but a pilgrmage of prayer. So please no political banners other than ones that say Salaam, peace, etc.
For specific information please contact us.
