This year's annual 9/11 unity walk brought together hundreds of people from differing faiths.

This is the second year that Mike Rychlik and his wife have joined friends in making this trek down embassy row in D.C.

"We are really focusing on coming together and celebrating what we have in common. There's a service component to this, all the faiths have that in common, service to the needy; we start from that and if we learn about others religion, then the more the better," says Rychlik.

Walkers were encouraged to visit the Islamic Center to learn more about community service project opportunities, and could stop by 12 open churches and religious centers on their expedition toward the Ghandi memorial near Dupont Circle.
