Reflections on the Eve of the 20th Anniversary


Dear Friends,

Tomorrow we commemorate the milestone of the 20th Anniversary and honor the 2,977 precious lives lost on September 11, 2001.

The anniversary is also a time to remember all those who have been affected since - the 4,700 responders and survivors who have died of 9/11-related illnesses, and their grieving families, and the 83,000 who are suffering from serious medical and mental health conditions.

May the flame of hope shine bright, because with hope, peace, faith and love, we can transform our lives!

It is our annual tradition to host a poignant candle lighting ceremony. Please take a moment to view this year’s ceremony here. We hope it brings you all comfort, knowing that light shines brightly for all in the 9/11 community and that you are all in our thoughts today and always.

With gratitude for your friendship and support,

Mary Fetchet & the VOICES Team
