Hong Kong students will read passages about hope, love and unity from the Bible, the Koran and the Torah tonight to mark the first anniversary of the terror attacks at a memorial organised by the American community. Six secondary school students will read religious passages in English from Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Baha'i at the concert room in City Hall, Central. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa and the US Consul-General, James Keith, will speak after the readings at the hour-long International Memorial for Peace, which starts at 7.30pm. 'These passages express the shared message of unity and peace that is represented in each of these world religions,' said a spokesman for the American Chamber of Commerce, which helped organise the event. 'Our intent for the memorial is based around this same theme - that peace is achieved through unity.' Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen and Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung will attend, along with representatives of the diplomatic corps. The keynote speech by Mr Tung follows criticism of the SAR government for failing to organise a memorial until September 29 last year.
