“We Remember” At the News 4 NY and NY Giants Health and Fitness Expo

By Lauren Picciallo and Shannon Breslin

Exploring the National September 11 Memorial & Museum

Last Monday, the VOICES summer interns journeyed into the city to visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. As the college interns of the group, we were in second grade at the time of the attacks. Immersed in the images and audio of the exhibitions, we heard the first-hand accounts of victims, first-responders, and survivors. The experience will forever be ingrained in our minds, as the museum exposed the gravity of September 11 that we did not fully comprehend from the shelter of our elementary school classrooms.

Visiting the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Trip With Responders and Survivors

 The hustle of the city is almost silenced by the pools that cascade deep into the ground at the 9/11 Memorial site.  The solemn hum of the pools, the trees draping - creating shadows over the onlookers, the Freedom Tower, and the 9/11 Memorial Museum - shapes the somber atmosphere created as one reflects on the enormity of September 11th, 2001.   At the Memorial Museum, people reflected on the day when nearly 3,000 people lost their lives. 

One Week, Two Memorials

Although today is only Wednesday, this week has already been full of excitement in the lives of our VOICES interns. Monday, we started off our day by heading into the city and getting a firsthand look at the National September 11th Memorial Museum. The day we had been anticipating and looking forward to all summer did not disappoint.

A Day at the Museum

On July 13th, the program director of our New Brunswick office, Carrie Miller, organized a trip to the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City with 9/11 responders and survivors from Middlesex County, New Jersey. Carrie, a licensed clinical social worker, accompanied them as they toured the museum and listened to their shared memories of September 11, 2001.
