It was wonderful to see so many of you at our September 10th Information Forum and September 11th Commemorative Luncheon. This year’s events continued our annual tradition of providing an opportunity for 9/11 family members, rescue workers and those impacted by 9/11 to gather and receive pertinent information.

As we enter the final week in July, I am sure many of you are discussing with your families how and where to observe the upcoming seventh anniversary.

This week I’d like to draw your attention to a serious topic outlined in an editorial in the New York Times, as well as an Op-Ed: the transition that will take place in 2009 from President Bush to his successor. The editorial points out that with two wars under way, this transition will be “riskier than any in recent memory” and calls on candidates to think about how they will handle the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and an orderly withdrawal from Iraq.
