Religious tract printed in Spanish titled "Dios: Nuestro Refugio y Nuestra Fuerza: Palabras de Alientos y Esperanza tomadas de la Biblia.” This text translates as: “God: Our Refuge and Our Strength – Words of Encouragement and Hope from the Bible.”
In the aftermath of September 11th, many people rallied around their religious faiths to find comfort and make sense of the tragedy. Tracts like these were published in numerous languages by faith-based organizations and were important mental health resources for those most impacted by the attacks.
