9/11 Meditation At Commemorative Monument in Padua, Italy

On September 11, 2001, the terrorist attacks launched against the United States and the free world was unprecedented in terms of savagery and brutality. Every year on this date, there is a commemoration of the lives of those who died so tragically: people who were simply working in the World Trade Center, or who perished in the attempt to save them. In Padua, the city of St. Anthony, they are very proud to possess a monument dedicated to the tragedy of 9/11 called Memory and Light. It is a symbolic representation of a twofold necessity: first, to be mindful of the evils of fanaticism and hatred, secondly, to never lose faith in the values of solidarity, peace, justice and equality, just like St. Anthony taught all those centuries ago.
