As New York prepares for the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001 attacks, our city will gather together to inspire each other and create a new vision for an harmonious Future. To this end, musicians, spiritual leaders, and members of the medical, education, and faith communities will come together to embrace “courage, sacrifice, healing and renewal” in this extraordinary setting overlooking our beautiful city. All proceeds will go to support scholarships for 9/11 responders and their children. Video testimonies from WTC disaster responders and the companion book, “”We’re Not Leaving! 9/11 Responders Tell their Stories of Courage, Sacrifice and Renewal” will also be part of the program. Dr. Benjamin Luft, Director, Long Island Medical Monitoring and Treatment Center/State University of New York at Stony Brook and author of this book will share his experiences serving and interviewing the 9/11 community of first responders.
