Film on Reconciliation – In Our Son’s Name
In commemoration of 9/11/01 and in honor of UN International Peace Day, Pax Christi Metro New York will be showing the film “In Our Son’s Name” about the transformation that Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez experienced after their son Greg died in the attack on the World Trade Center in NYC. The decision to choose reconciliation instead of revenge thrusts them reluctantly into the public eye as they speak out against war in Iraq and Afghanistan, oppose the death penalty for 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, befriend his mother, and reach out to men incarcerated for violent crimes. This moving portrait of a positive response to violence challenges conventional concepts of healing and justice. Phyllis and Orlando will be with us to facilitate discussion.
