We heard Sr. Simone Campbell, SSS, talk about the importance of a faithful budget for our country. It would provide reasonable revenue for responsible programs, put American back to work rebuilding our roads, bridges and schools and that all people pay their fair share of taxes. We want to affirm the life of all God's Children.
Sr. Simone spoke on the Manhattan side of the ferry and then a crowd climbed onto the Staten Island Ferry where we went and sat on Borough Hall's steps where Sr. Simone spoke again and so did various community leaders of both the civic and faith communities. It was great to be with so many people who are working for the dignity of the human person and truly caring for all as brothers and sisters.
The Nuns of the Ferry event is branch from the Nuns on the Bus movement which focuses on faith, family and fairness. Check it all out on www.networklobby.org.
