The Story Behind Tuesday’s Children
Everybody remembers the time and place where they first learned about the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. It was a day when time stood still and our nation came to a halt. Those of us lucky enough to be able to, huddled with family and friends in front of our televisions, trying to make sense of the horrific scene we saw that day. All the while, exceptionally courageous men and women – true heroes – rushed to ground zero, selflessly putting themselves into harm’s way in order to help those affected by these evil deeds. It was a truly unforgettable event for our nation.
The 9/11 attacks didn’t just characterize a generation, or define the decade; they changed our country and determined our path forward. On that day, the evil of the world came to our shores, claiming many innocent lives along the way. It also gave us resolve, and unity. We stood with our neighbors and proudly flew our flags. America had suffered, but she was also strong, and her people resilient.
The effect on the countless families and relatives of the souls lost in connection to this event cannot be quantified. Nearly two decades later, the sense of loss and grief is very real and strongly felt by those left behind. Healing and closure after such tragedy can be a lifelong process. This is why the work done by “Tuesday’s Children” is so crucial to our communities. Their dedication to long-term support for people affected by these terrible acts is a much needed service that deserves to be supported. The 9/11 attacks showed the world, once again, that the acts of evil people will be met with greater determination by the acts of good men and women, and that we, collectively as a Nation, would “Never Forget”.
