Looking Forward:We lost dear friends and relatives on September, 11th, but in the process, we’ve healed as a community and created lasting relationships that bond us together. Through our commitments to each other, we can heal by turning our tragedies into a positive force for good. We have a enduring commitment to the children who lost parents on September 11th, and as they get older we are providing access to career services and strive to empower them to become the next generation of leaders by allowing them to give back through community service, mentoring, and supporting younger children in our community, including children of veterans and first responders. Tuesday’s Children has a moral responsibility to share the knowledge we’ve gained since September 11th, about long-term and collective healing. For this reason, our mission has expanded to offer support and programming to other communities impacted by acts of terror. Through programs like Project COMMON BOND and the Resiliency Center of Newtown, we are committed to being a leader in long-term recovery from mass acts of tragedy and terrorism. We feel it is our duty not only to memorialize those we’ve lost, but to do all we can to comfort and support their children and families…ur living memorials.
