Lessons of Love from 9/11

A University professor writes in America magazine of the enduring lessons of love and faith Americans took from 9/11.

In the August issues of America magazine, David J. O'Brien, University Professor of Faith and Culture, reflects on how the images and stories of 9/11 demonstrated that the goodness and greatness of the American people are alive and well. His poignant essay suggests the tragedy, heroism and love of those days offer an opportunity to remember and recommit to the ideals of faith and country. America is the only national Catholic weekly magazine in the United States. Look for a version of O'Brien's piece as well in the next University of Dayton Magazine.

Read the essay and listen to an interview with O'Brien at America magazine.
