On April 19th, 1995 the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City was bombed, senselessly taking the lives of 168 people and injuring nearly 700. Today, fifteen years later, we would like to take a moment to remember the men, women and children who were lost and to extend our deepest sympathies to the families, survivors and all who were affected.

With the Tenth Anniversary approaching and the news coverage of the devastating destruction in Japan, many families have reported feeling anxious. Besides turning off the TV, Radio and Internet, leaving magazines and newspapers unread, and hiding under the covers, what can we do? Working with the families over the years we've found that each individual has different ways of coping with exposure to images and reminders of 9/11. The most important consideration is to take the time to consider what is right for you and your family.

As the sobering details from Haiti continue to unfold, our thoughts and prayers are with those families who have been so profoundly impacted. The loss of life and human suffering are hard to imagine and, much like after 9/11, the outpouring of compassion and generosity from around the world has been extraordinary.
