Where were you on September 11, 2001?
If you’re like us, you were starting off an ordinary Tuesday. Making your morning coffee. Rushing into the office. For the younger ones among us, maybe even sitting in your second period math class.
And then things changed forever.
While we’ll never forget where we were on that fateful day, we think on this 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, it’s much more important to remember where they are.
The first responders who rushed toward the falling towers, paying the ultimate sacrifice. The children who were just infants at the time of the attack, and are now growing up without a mom or dad. The survivors who are still struggling with scars, both physical and emotional, more than a decade later.
We remember them, and we honor them. We encourage you to do the same.
On Patriot Day this year, please consider giving to one of these deserving organizations:
Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, which has contributed more than $100 million to the dependents of those killed or injured in the attacks.
The New York Community Trust, which has continuously provided legal, financial and revitalization support for people and places affected by the attacks.
FealGood Foundation, which helps to cover medical expenses of emergency responders with health conditions stemming from the attacks.
