GRATITUDE AND BUILDING BRIDGES
Presenter: Nadia McCaffrey, with music by Annie and the Vets
On this Thanksgiving weekend we will reflect with Gold Star mom Nadia McCaffrey on the love that gives life meaning and the seeds of peace we can all plant. After experiencing the loss of her only son in a “war based on lies”, Nadia will share her meditation on gratefulness and the connection we have all felt with all life. Since her son Patrick died on June 22, 2004, Nadia has fearlessly spoken truth to power. She has grieved with Iraqi families who have lost so much, recognizing that people want to live in peace. She shone light on her son Patrick’s coffin when he was returned to his California home and helped the Pentagon tell the facts about his death..

Nadia was born in France, came to America as a young woman, and for decades led non-profit Compassion in Action and Angelstaff Hospice, training people to work with death and dying. One of her special projects now is a retreat center for Iraq veterans who need consistent caring and support.

Lunch will be served after the service
