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.”
Help Us Pack Millions of Meals For COVID Relief
For the 20th anniversary of 9/11, help us pack millions of meals for COVID relief.
In many cities across the nation, we are working to organize COVID-19 safe volunteer projects to pack meals for people in need.
Jay Winuk and David Paine have dedicated their lives to "taking the day back from the terrorists" and turning 9/11 into a day of unity and doing good.
9/11 Day has grown to become the nation's largest day of charitable service in the U.S.
