All of us at the September 11th Families’ Association and the 9/11 Tribute Center are mourning for the lives taken at the Boston Marathon. Our prayers are with all those affected by terrorism.
“As a family member, it is not surprising to hear that a piece of the landing gear from Flight 175 was found considering last week additional remains were just identified that were recently recovered. It is a reminder of why we need to understand the effects of terrorism, like the horrible events in Boston. It is a reminder of why our country must stay vigilant against terrorism and work towards understanding and education to promote a better tomorrow,” said Lee Ielpi, Board President of September 11th Families’ Association & 9/11 Tribute Center.
