Dear FOS11 Member,
A traveling exhibition that pays tribute to the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001 will be crossing the nation to build support for the creation of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. The exhibition tells the story of 9/11 from the perspective of families, responders, survivors, volunteers and everyday people who came together on that terrible day and in the agonizing weeks that followed. It includes photographs, artifacts, a short film, and a detailed timeline of the events of 9/11.
Individuals and communities across the country will also have the chance to contribute directly to this historic effort by signing a steel beam that will be used in the construction of the National September 11 Memorial.
The national tour is part of a grassroots awareness and fundraising effort to involve as many Americans as possible in contributing to the National Memorial & Museum that will honor the innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 and preserve the memory of the events for future generations. For more information on the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and details of the national tour, please visit: www.national911memorial.org
