As many of you know, for the past year and a half we have been working with the CDC to inform survivors and responders about medical and mental health care coverage that they may be eligible to receive through the World Trade Center Health Program. Some of those we speak to question whether applying to the program is the right choice for them.

It doesn't seem like it has been five years since the crash of Flight 3407 took the life of our friend and VOICES co-founder, Beverly Eckert. Beverly was a dear friend and a passionate advocate for the creation of the 9/11 Commission. Everyone who knew her was impressed by her energy and commitment and she is sorely missed.

On the Eve of the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook School shootings, our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the 20 first-graders and 6 educators who died, those who survived, and the community affected by this tragic event. This week there has been much attention focused on the need for school safety, the weaknesses in the mental health care system and the challenges of addressing violence in our country.

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.
