SHARING THE 9/11 MEMORIAL ACROSS AMERICA

ORIGINS OF 9/11 REMEMBERED TRAVELING MEMORIAL

After the attacks of September 11, 2001, I volunteered at Ground Zero with my best friend Porkchop, my search and rescue canine partner. The cleanup took a total of nine months before every person left, hand in hand. The attacks caused unbelievable despair across America and much of the world...and yet, it also created a sense of unity. The feeling that:

“WE. ARE. ONE.”

The memories of Ground Zero are seared into the minds of anyone who responded to “the call” as well as those who witnessed it from afar.

 
 

9/11/2001 will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

We will always be united in our work to be there for each other as a Nation and a Family who looks out for each other in our times of most dire need. On September 11, 2011, The National September 11 Memorial was completed and opened for victims’ families. The following day the public was permitted to visit the memorial. On May 21, 2014, the 9/11 Museum was officially opened. Finally, on November 3, 2014, the Freedom Tower opened it’s doors.

America waited a very long time to memorialize those lost on 9/11

I believe the wait was worth it.

After countless funerals, memorials, and charitable events over the course of the years, I still get chills when I go to the site and visit the Memorial Gardens, the Museum and now the Memorial Glade. All of America deserves to see these tributes to those lost in the attacks and those lost since because of their help.

It’s the mission of the 9/11 Remembered Traveling Memorial to do just that.

Our four trucks welcome visitors to learn, in an interactive, hands-on way, about the events of 9/11 in all three locations, and the nine-month Rescue and Recovery effort. We want what people experience with our traveling exhibit to motivate and inspire them to visit New York’s National September 11 Memorial and Museum and feel the intensity and the magnitude of this beautiful Memorial for themselves.
