For some people, a day without a cloud in a sky is a blessing. For others, it is a reminder of the worst day in their lives. At Voices of September 11th we understand both feelings. For more than 12 years, we have worked with 9/11 families, rescue workers and survivors. We remain committed to helping families commemorate their loved ones through the 9/11 Living Memorial Project, which will be a core component of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

As we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, we count our many blessings, especially the wonderful family and friends who have supported us over the years. We also pause to remember and celebrate the lives of the special people who are no longer with us.

I am writing with the sad news that our longtime friend and former co-worker, Darlene Johnson, has passed away after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. First and foremost, Darlene was a personal friend who quietly supported our family through a challenging time after 9/11. We will always be grateful!

It seems that a day doesn't go by that 9/11 is not in the news - whether it is a story about a movie or television show, conflict in the Middle East, or once again, an incident of mass violence. Our hearts go out to all of those who lost loved ones in the shooting in Washington, D.C. We know all too well the path they will be on and how difficult that journey will be over the years.

Over the last two days, it has been wonderful to visit with so many of you in New York City. Others have sent thoughtful notes or called to offer words of encouragement. I can't express how grateful Frank and I are for your friendship, guidance and support.
