This little known monument, “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism,” dedicated on the fifth anniversary of 9/11, gives some expression to the magnitude of grief occasioned by the events of 9/11. It is a gift from President Vladimir Putin, the people of Russia and the artist, Zurab Tsereteli, to the people of the United States.”. (It also provoked some consternation for a variety of reasons.)
As we look back to that day that changed the world as we know it , it might be life-giving for us to review the response of the Vincentian Family.
