Groups Trying To Organize Walk For 9/11 Anniversary

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Several groups are trying to get a walk together for the anniversary of 9/11.

The city has yet to issue them permits to do it, but a number of interfaith and secular groups are trying to organize a walk toward Ground Zero on the 10th anniversary as a symbol of reversing what happened that dark day.

“A walk of fear if you will on September 11, 2001 is being replaced by a walk of hope and healing,” said Reverend Bob Chase

Chase says the groups are promoting religious tolerance as a contrast to the sharp debates which erupted approaching last year’s 9th anniversary over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero.
