9/11 Tribute Museum

9/11 Tribute Museum The 9/11 Tribute Museum brings together those who want to learn about 9/11 with those who experienced it. The 9/11 Tribute Museum, formally known as the 9/11 Tribute Center is a project of the September 11th Families’ Association, a 501(c)3 non profit, began serving the public in 2006.
(208)

The September 11th Families’ Association was created by the widows and families of the Fire Department of New York. The Association established a new mission to unite and support all victims of terrorism through communication, representation and peer support. The 9/11 Tribute Museum embodies the need to gather at the World Trade Center site, connecting the people, places and events of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001 and reflect.

Mission: The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a project of the September 11th Families’ Association which brings together those who want to learn about 9/11 with those who experienced it. The 9/11 Tribute Museum invites visitors to share personal stories of the 9/11 community — family members who lost loved ones, survivors, first responders and rescue workers, civilian volunteers, and community residents whose healing is a testament to the perseverance of the human spirit. We provide an understanding of the loss and impact of 9/11 while inspiring the power of resilience and recovery.

Greetings Friends & Family,

In normal times, this week the 9/11 Tribute Museum would be building bikes as a service activity for the children of our active military, as we have done for the last ten years. Along with volunteers from companies devastated by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, our teams have built and delivered more than 4,000 bicycles to make children smile while their parents are deployed.

This year, COVID-19 has prevented us from gathering together in the wonderful service of the bike build. Like so many other museums, Tribute is struggling, having lost all our income for many months.

We’re asking you to consider a donation to Tribute in order to ensure that next year, we’re back shoulder to shoulder building more bicycles than ever and that we’re able to share our stories from September 11, 2001 at the 9/11 Tribute Museum.

Thank you.

September 11, 2001 is a day we can truly never forget.

On this day, we honor and remember the 2,977 lives that were lost that day, the thousands who have lost their lives in the years since due to 9/11 related illness, along with the countless survivors, first responders, recovery workers and more who continue to battle illness to this day.

On this day we also remember the countless number of family members who continue to be an inspiration with the courage and perseverance they all exemplify every day.

May we all remember the vow we made 19 years ago to #NeverForget.

May we all continue to do our part to make the world a better place though kindness and service to one another.

NEVER FORGET 9/11 NEVER FORGET FLIGHT 93 Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11, meaning that an entire generation now has little or no memory of 9/11. In just over a year it will be the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Of course, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Perhaps even more importantly the heroism of many on 9/11, from the first responders to the passengers and crew of Flight 93 must never be forgotten. Also forgotten will be the wonderful unity we felt as Americans on 9/12, due in no small part because of the heroism on display that terrible day. The story of the heroism of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 must not be relegated to the dustbins of history. The play “Remember Flight 93: A True Story of American Courage,” centers around the Airphone and cellphone calls of the passengers and crew of Flight 93, as well as the air traffic chatter to paint the what is arguably the most accurate version of the events of that day. The play is currently registered at the 9/11 Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and I am a founding member of the Flight 93 National Memorial. Because I believe the importance of the story more than anything else, I am offering the free use of the play to professional theatre groups, theatre departments in high schools and colleges, community theatre groups, etc. I only ask that the performance be recorded and shared with me. I believe It would be very unfortunate if, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the play was not being performed. When the play was first performed on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in Arvada, Colorado, it was accompanied by music that included the national anthems of the United States and several other nations, as well as other patriotic music and unofficial national anthems of nations. One of those unofficial national anthems is the rousing John McDermott, of the Irish Tenors, rendition of Scotland the Brave. A free copy of the script will be provided to any and all who request it.

18 years since I penned this letter and that I've been doing this. Please won't you join me once again on 9/11 in lighting these memorial candles! "Just before the first anniversary of 9/11 I wrote the following letter to local papers and the New York newspapers. "With the anniversary of 9/11/01 drawing fast upon us, I would like to propose an idea for a tribute to all that lost their lives on that fateful day. I suggest that on 9/11/02 at dusk that everyone should light 3 candles outside their homes (similar to what was done those first couple of nights after the attack). Each of the candles should be a different color, red, white and blue: RED: for the FDNY firefighters and EMS workers BLUE: for the NYPD and PAPD officers and Military WHITE: for all the citizens that were lost that day. I remember how moved I felt driving down the street and seeing all the lit candles in front of all my neighbor's homes. There are no words that can describe the loss and pain of that day, so let our actions speak for us!! Light your candles to show the world we will never forget September 11th, show the survivors that we still are thinking about them and to all that lost loved ones that we still grieve with them!! With the 19th anniversary of this day coming up this year, I again propose this simple way to remember all that were lost on that tragic day. I'd also like to include our thoughts and prayers to extend to all that we have lost over the years around the world to terrorist acts like this one. Please help me spread the word around the country and around the world!! "
Do not allow 9/11 to go dark! Let the lights shine! Let the outrage be heard over the National September 11 Memorial & Museum's utterly insulting and disgusting refusal to illuminate the 9/11 Tribute Lights for the first time since 2002. This decision is inexcusable and a blatant slap in the face to every American life lost or affected on that horrific September day nearly twenty years ago. If hundreds of people are not only allowed to, but have been encouraged to "protest" on our streets and in our hometowns, then 40 workers can set up the Tribute Lights. America will not be bullied any longer! We will rise up. We will be heard, and we demand due honor and remembrance this September 11th and always! Let the lights shine! NEVER FORGET! * I will be forwarding this to its intended recipiants just as soon as it has acquired enough signatures! So please sign and share! This is too devastating to allow!
After 911 I wanted the Middle East to reform that important lessons of 9/11
Betty ong and Madeline amy sweeney are my everyday hero thank you for everything those amazing angel of the sky’s
9/11 still very important lessons to learn and lose of a loves ones and I hope to to visit one day 👍👍
We all have heard and read about Anne Frank (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P4XSnDyUQ4) but not about this Hiroshima born Sadako - a lively and athletic 11 year old - who became a victim of "atomic bomb disease" I especially appreciate the way we come to know Sadako and what a giving, selfless person she is. A large lesson from the book is omoiyari-no-kokoro - the act of showing empathy and concern. I strongly recommend this as required reading for the young generation, which will hopefully be more capable of empathy and imagination.
The Lower Manhattan Historical Association has been leading July 4th Parade in Lower Manhattan since 2015. In lieu of the parade this year they have provided this youtube showing highlights of the parades in the past 5 years! Enjoy!

I listened to this on the New York Times THE DAILY PODCAST and i will admit it broke me, we were sposed to be visiting NYC in August for the 6th time but now we have cancelled to be on the safe side but we WILL be back in 2021 !!!!! the following is the transcript from the podcast and i had to share it with you all. My name is Roger Cohen. I’ve worked for The New York Times for just over 30 years and was a foreign correspondent for much of that time, foreign editor. And now I’m a columnist. Which means I write opinion pieces for the paper. People might think I don’t sound like a New Yorker. But I feel in spirit, and in the intensity of my feelings for the city and my identification with it, very much a New Yorker. Yes. So I’d been living with this ghostly New York. And I would lie awake sometimes at night and hear distant sirens and occasionally a chopper overhead, and birdsong in the morning and again the sirens, asking myself: When, when will New York come back? It’s a city of energy. Energy defines New York. And how will that energy reconstitute itself? What about the tourists? What about the restaurants, the bars, the museums? Broadway, businesses — everything. So I was just going for long walks at the end of the day. And I’d been on this long walk out to Brooklyn naval yards and beyond. And as I was coming back, it was dusk and there was nobody around, and there were these pieces of plastic and cans skittering across Front Street. And I saw a rat. You know, it’s not a rare sight in New York, but the rat was just kind of ambling around. And because there was nobody else around, this just set off a kind of apocalyptic vision of the city taken over by vermin. It was a day or two after that, that that I woke up with this line in my head, and I started writing: I forgive you, New York. I forgive you your snarl, your aggression, your hustle and hassle. I forgive you LaGuardia and your summer stench of uncollected garbage. I forgive you no cabs in the rain. I forgive you the crusty, deceptive puddles of slush at curbside. I even forgive you the Mets and no place to park and delivery trucks in the bike lane. All is forgiven if you will only return: the subway soliloquies of the homeless, the trains that never come, the trains that stop in the middle of the tunnel, the traffic, the garbage trucks blocking cross streets, the jackhammering of construction, the hiss of smoke from a manhole cover, the idling stretch-limo S.U.V.s, the drone of a million air-conditioning units, the drivers leaning on horns, the city hum that never ceases, until it did. I forgive you. I forgive you now and forever. How could I ever begrudge you your restlessness, your relentlessness, your lip, your effrontery, your appraising glance, your pushiness, your impatience, your disregard for social niceties, when I knew all along that your great secret was that an extreme degree of ambition coexists in your streets with the empathy every New Yorker feels for a fellow New Yorker? Only come back and all is pardoned: the tourists meandering in the theater district, your roads pitted with potholes, your crazy prices, your dinner parties ending at 9:30 because tomorrow is another New York day and theres money to be made, your awful basketball, your restaurants that have a table maybe in a couple of months, your overcrowded sidewalks, your iPhone addicts gathered at the exit of a subway station, your way of never ever relenting until you turn every one of your workers into a zombie by nightfall. I forgive you the rats yes, even the rats and Ill throw in the roaches. The swelter of August, forgiven. The icy winter winds off the Hudson and the East River, forgiven. The impossibility of getting across town, forgiven. I forgive you the crowds, the craziness, the cruelty, the cursing, the complaining customers, the impatient merchants and the most uncomfortable cabs in the world. I forgive you your kale salads, your restaurants that sell only oatmeal, your trends. I forgive you your street preachers, your sanctimonious parents who drone on about their childrens schools. I forgive you Macys during the Christmas season and Times Square always. I forgive you your ticket-holder lines, your throngs blocking out the paintings at MoMA, your rush-hour subways crammed with humanity. I forgive you the holding of subway doors, your drunks peeing and puking on the street. I forgive you Penn Station. I forgive you the Port Authority, yes, even that! I forgive you the brutal division of haves and have-nots. I forgive you the bus to the cabs at LaGuardia-in-construction and the recording that tries to persuade you that the bus is really great news. Look, I’ll pardon the madness of having AirTrain JFK start in Queens rather than Manhattan. I forgive you the whiff of urine on a Sunday morning, the broken glass in Central Park and the way you persuade people that saying I may have a window next month is OK behavior. I forgive you for driving me crazy at times, for making me want to scream, Get me out of here! I forgive you everything without exception if you will only promise to reappear. Please, do not be proud. I know, we cursed you with irresponsible abandon. Forgive us, as I forgive you. We did not imagine the silence that could fall, the sirens that would fill the night, the sick and the dying, the doctors laboring on the 10th circle of the inferno, the ghostliness of shuttered stores, the empty skies, the canceled events, the post-apocalypse latex gloves scattered here and there. We took you too much for granted. Yes, forgive us for not giving daily praise for the miracle of New York. I know I did not thank you enough for those clear winter mornings, for that dive I love on West 26th, for your tolerance, for your open arms, for the sun glinting on the Empire State Building, for your ampleness, for New York Noodletown, for your secrets slowly revealed, for your endlessness, for your boldness, for your churn, for the Met Cloisters, for your humanity, for your wit, for Coney Island, for the water towers, for the Staten Island Ferry being free, for banking over the city into LaGuardia or J.F.K. and seeing you and thinking this is home, for taking me in as no other city ever could. Being a New Yorker, I was in a hurry. I was forgetful. You get that. Please forgive me. Please forgive us all. Ill throw in the pigeons. Forgive you for every one of those awful birds. Just come back, just return, please. I know we can make a deal.
