In order to raise awareness about the unity of faiths, SSIO volunteers in Northern California joined the Multi-faith Voices for Peace and Justice and the American Muslim Voice to host the annual 9/11 Peace Prayers and Picnic at the King Plaza in Palo Alto. Different faith groups offered songs, scripture readings, and prayers stressing the message of love and peace. The evening started with a picnic followed by a children’s choir, multi-faith prayers, musical presentations and ended with a candlelight vigil. About 10 SSIO members, led by Sathya Sai Young Adults, presented a short musical programme, which was enthusiastically received by the audience. The 9/11 Multifaith Peace Prayers programme reflected the message imparted by Sathya Sai Baba about oneness and unity of faiths. The Sathya Sai Young Adults felt gratified knowing that they were part of something larger – the unifying force of love that overcame the sorrow and grief inflicted by terrorism on 11th September 2001 in New York.
