In Our Son’s Name: A Family Responds to 9/11
Come join us to hear about “…(the) compelling message that further violence does not ease the pain of victims’ family members and that we must above all work to maintain our own humanity and to see the humanity of others.” Renny Cushing, Executive Director, Murder Victims’ Families for Human Rights
Julia Rodriguez, Associate Professor of History at the University of New Hampshire and sister of Greg Rodriguez who died in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11, will screen and lead a discussion of In Our Son’ s Name. The documentary follows her parents, Phyllis and Orlando Rodríguez, exploring grief, the possibility of healing, and the search for meaning in the aftermath of their son’s heartbreaking death.
