The Tribute Center is a project of the September 11th Widows and Victims' Families' Association. The idea for the Tribute Center grew out of the desire of those closely affected by the events of September 11th to share their stories – accounts of the day and the remarkable outpouring of help and heroism; narratives of courage in spite of loss and grief; and reports of resilience in the face of tragedy. It came from a realization that we are living through a historical moment and that all of these stories can bring perspective and hope to those seeking to learn about one of the most infamous days in America’s history.
