Our Voices: Message from the Director
As family and friends gather today to pay their respects to Senator John McCain on what would have been his 82nd birthday, we offer our sincere condolences. In the aftermath of 9/11, Senator McCain demonstrated remarkable leadership and character in supporting the 9/11 families’ quest for the creation of a 9/11 Commission.
From our 10th Annual Always Remember Gala in April to our Resiliency Symposium in May, conferences in Canada, welcoming a new class of interns, and happenings at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum , Voices of September 11th had a busy and productive spring! Check out highlights from our latest newsletter.
In the wake of yesterday's shootings in Florida many schools have implemented police security. Parents in our local community are asking for guidance on how to answer their children's questions about the shootings and the increase in security, as well as addressing concerns about their safety.
As the holiday season approaches and we gather with family and friends, we remember those who are no longer with us. Often times family traditions change after a loss, and we find new ways to celebrate the holidays and keep the memory of our loved ones alive. Personally, I have always found great joy in decorating for the Christmas season.
