Coming Soon: Video Blog of 9/11 Unity Walk

This past Sunday I attended the 9/11 Unity Walk in Washington, DC. The purpose of the event was to commemorate the victims of 9/11, and face the hatred of its perpetrators with a unified message of tolerance. Leaders and believers from many religious communities attended, including Baha'is, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and Zoroastrians.

I'm currently editing my video blog of the event, but I hope to have it up by this coming Sunday at the latest. Here are some photos in the meanwhile:
