In any tragedy, we memorialize those who are lost; but we must never lose sight of, and do all we can for, those who are left, for they are our most important living memorials, and can become our most valuable ambassadors. Tuesday’s Children serves all members of the 9/11 community including, but not limited to, children, spouses and young adults. They link families with similar experiences, which has a profound and positive impact on their collective healing.
