Hundreds of people set aside their various religions today for the Sixth Annual 9/11 Unity Walk down Embassy Row.
Co-founder of the walk, Kyle Poole, says this trek is an opportunity to bring together people of differing faiths and to build community among groups.
"We also will push the envelope," he says. "For example start of in the synagogue with Muslim call to prayer, then we go to the Islamic center, where Jewish cantors sing over the loud speakers. In fact -- even where "Amazing Grace" is sung from mosque ground," Poole says.
He says doing something like this is especially important this year.
"The sheer fact of coming together -- this is a complete apolitical event," he says. "We've had all three branches of Judaism, different Muslim groups -- people of all religions come together."
Along the walk visitors could stop at 12 open churches and houses of faith.
