Commemorating Sept. 11 with Love
This summer, Rep. Keith Ellison stirred the hearts of thousands at the Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly in Minnesota. Rep. Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, emphasized in his speech the power of our mission of Love to overcome division and promote harmony.
On the 9th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, we offer excerpts from his inspiring words of wisdom, as we remember those who lost their lives, and continue our work to promote freedom and peace.
“There is enough love for you and for me, there is enough for the straight and the gay, there is enough for the people who were born in America and the new immigrants, there is enough for the blacks, there is enough for the whites, there is enough for the Latinos, there is enough for the Asians, there is enough for the Muslims, the Christians, the Jews, the Buddhists, the Hindus. There is enough for everybody.”
