9/11 Perspectives


August 29-September 5 Podcast

A historian and a priest involved in interreligious dialogue look back on the legacy of September 11.
Historian David O'Brien talks about how September 11 marked a turning point in his identity as an historian and "Americanist" and how impressed he was by the stories of courage and love that grew from that day. In a second interview, Fr. Robert Robbins describes his role in inter-religious relations in New York in the period following September 11.
