Voices from the 9/11 community
"We can’t bring our loved ones back. But perhaps in tribute, we can work to rekindle the spirit of unity that arose in the aftermath of the attacks."
"We wanted something positive to come from the loss of so many innocent people in such a terrible way. We didn't want the terrorists to forever define how 9/11 would be remembered."
"As a volunteer firefighter and attorney, my brother Glenn lived his life – and died – in service to others. Making 9/11 a day of doing good deeds reflects the way he lived his life. He’d welcome this kind of observance."
“Don't ever forget these days, boys. We came in as individuals. And we'll walk out together.”
"Having the honor of proudly serving one's country and being dedicated to the betterment of humanity does not necessarily require the donning of a uniform. Sometimes all it really requires is the unshakeable faith in something greater than yourself."
