Listen to Brian Concannon’s Reflection on the September 11th Tragedies Ten Years Ago

Today, Brian Concannon reflects upon the September 11th tragedies that shocked the entire world just 10 years ago. Brian was in Port-au-Prince when the incidents occurred, and recalls that it was hard for him to be away from his family and friends in the U.S. However, “It was also a blessing.” Brian remembers how all his Haitian friends stopped by and asked whether his family and friends were safe, even strangers offered condolences to him. Americans have the same capacity to transform this traumatic experience into empathy for understanding the difficult situations other countries are undergoing, just as Haitians showed him ten years ago. Listen to Brian share his reflection on 9/11 and what we can do to help Haiti.
