This week I had the pleasure of visiting Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. The university invited me to address the student body to discuss the formation of Voices of September 11th, our advocacy work and the importance of civic engagement.

This week we held a workshop in Brooklyn, New York. Our staff was touched by the stories and the personal keepsakes the families shared to include in the 9/11 Living Memorial. They brought exceptional photographs, newspaper articles, and tributes as well as medals and awards to include in the digital archive.

In the past several weeks VOICES has reached a major milestone. With your participation, more than 1,000 Family Tributes have been added to our 9/11 Living Memorial digital archive. Some families have just begun the process, while others are continuing to add photographs and tributes to commemorate the lives of their loved ones.

Yesterday we held a 9/11 Living Memorial workshop in New Jersey at the home of Loreen & Matthew Sellitto. As always, it was wonderful for the VOICES staff to meet with families to help them begin their Family Tribute pages.

This week, photographer Brownie Harris, shared with me a selection of the family portraits he took of many of you at our "Preserving 9/11" Forum and Commemorative Luncheon. I was struck by the resiliency that was conveyed in so many of the photos.

I want to begin by thanking all of you who attended the September 10th and 11th events. Despite the solemnity of our reason for gathering, it was wonderful to see each of you, some for the first time.

As the Sixth Anniversary is quickly approaching, it has been heartwarming to hear from so many of you that I’ve had the pleasure to meet over the past six years. Some are calling to make reservations to attend our upcoming Forum on September 10th and Commemorative Luncheon on September 11th.

The Sixth Anniversary is rapidly approaching and most of us feel a strong sense of anticipation. August has been a busy month for all of us at VOICES, as we put final touches on the agenda for the September 10th “Preserving 9/11” Forum and Exhibits and September 11th Commemorative luncheon.
