Father's Day is a time to thank the special men in our lives - our fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and those individuals whose guidance and sacrifice have shaped us in so many ways. It's also a time to remember those who aren't with us today, but whose memory lives on through the stories we share.

For some people, a day without a cloud in a sky is a blessing. For others, it is a reminder of the worst day in their lives. At Voices of September 11th we understand both feelings. For more than 12 years, we have worked with 9/11 families, rescue workers and survivors. We remain committed to helping families commemorate their loved ones through the 9/11 Living Memorial Project, which will be a core component of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

It seems that a day doesn't go by that 9/11 is not in the news - whether it is a story about a movie or television show, conflict in the Middle East, or once again, an incident of mass violence. Our hearts go out to all of those who lost loved ones in the shooting in Washington, D.C. We know all too well the path they will be on and how difficult that journey will be over the years.
