11 September 2003
events in Aotearoa / New Zealand

"We plan to encircle the World Trade Center site with a candlelight vigil on the night of September 10, 2003. Gather with us in New York City or create a Circle of Hope candlelight vigil in your own community." Peaceful Tomorrows invite you to commemorate the anniversary this year with Circles of Hope.

Peaceful Tomorrows is the US group comprising families whose relatives were killed in the 11 Sept attacks on New York and Washington. They "firmly believe that the real lesson of September 11 is that war and violence are the problems, not the solutions."
