The 15th Anniversary was a milestone, especially for those of us who were impacted on September 11, 2001. As we gathered in New York City, at the Pentagon in Shanksville, PA, or in our local communities, we remembered the 2,977 innocent citizens who lost their lives that day. As in years past, the anniversary was a time to commemorate, reflect on our personal journey and recognize the resilience of our 9/11 community.
On this solemn occasion, it was comforting to be surrounded by so many who have become extended family to us! September 11, 2001 was a day that changed so many lives. Nearly 1,000 responders and survivors have died as a result of their exposure to toxins at the World Trade Center site, and thousands are still suffering with serious medical and psychological conditions. More.
