In many cities across the United States, communities observed Veteran's Day by gathering together for a Veteran's Day parade. New York was no exception. Young and old alike gathered to watch a full fanfare of American flags waving, bands playing, and representatives from the military and prominent leaders march up Fifth Avenue.

In this week's newsletter we are featuring stories about the legacy that several family members have created through their work. Last week President Obama honored Steve and Liz Alderman with the 2011 Presidential Citizens Award for their work in establishing clinics in post-conflict countries through the foundation they created in memory of their son, Peter. As Liz Alderman wrote in her e-mail, "we wanted to leave a profound and indelible mark that Peter existed and that because he had lived, the world would be a better place."

The Tenth Anniversary was a busy and emotional time for us all. Whether you gathered at the Memorials in New York City, Washington, DC or in Shanksville, Pa, or attended memorial events in your community or chose to reflect privately, this anniversary was a challenging time for each of us.

All of us at VOICES send our heartfelt thanks to those who contributed to making our 10th Anniversary events truly memorable for the 9/11 community. This year we participated in fourteen commemorative events in five states, benefitting over 6,000 attendees. We owe a deep debt of gratitude to a long list of caring individuals who participated in panel discussions, displayed artwork and contributed their time and talent in a variety of ways.

As we gather together to remember the lives lost on 9/11, all of us at VOICES want you to know that you are in our thoughts. Whether you choose to spend this anniversary in your local community, in commemorations in New York City, Washington, D.C. or Shanksville, PA., whether you participate in observances in the United States or in one of the 90 countries who lost citizens on 9/11, we are with you. We gain strength from each other.
