FOS11 Chat Program Online Community Support Group
Reflections on the 5th Commemoration


The 5th Commemoration of 9/11 will mean different things to different people.  Some choose to go to memorial services, others to be with family and friends, while others find other ways to remember and honor those that were lost that day.  As we continue to move through this time of commemoration, it is often helpful to reflect and share your experiences with others.  This is the focus of the next chat, which will be held this Tuesday, September 12th, 8pm-9pm EDT.  Please take this opportunity to join with your peers in the 9/11 community.

This online chat session will provide 9/11 victims' families, survivors, first responders, and others affected by the attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and Shanksville the opportunity to discuss issues and topics of importance in a safe, supportive environment. As a reminder, all participants must be FOS11 members (please see below on how to register as a member - membership is free). Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional and noted trauma specialist, will facilitate the chat.
