your Red Cross
invites you to share what 9/11 meant to you.
would also like to hear how you will commemorate the day this year – with family and friends, participating in a volunteer project
, attending a remembrance service, or just quietly remembering those we lost that day.
Please post comments after this blog entry.
Please stay on topic of your personal reflections, feelings, and plans to commemorate.
Red Cross Disaster Volunteers from many countries were on the scene of the World Trade Center.
Red Crossers from our Chapter were there.
Red Crossers are trained to listen.
Sometimes they need to share too.
General public & Red Crossers both welcome to share here today.
If you would like a response, please leave contact information.
Happy Birthday Chris!
When asked if he would care to share his memories of that day, he replied:
…the feelings that I had on September 11 2001 are too much to put into words. I do know that the days following, I was so proud to be part of a great organization like the Red Cross. The GOC [Greater Ozarks Chapter] has the best VOLUNTEERS around. The support they gave me was overwhelming.
One relatively easy way to honor this day is to give blood
. A few minutes of your time and you can KNOW you saved a life – maybe three.
If you need a moment to gather your thoughts, here is a beautiful rendition of Taps
that Brian, the Supervisor of our Service to Armed Forces
casework, sent along last week.
