Unfortunately, grief does not have a set time limit. Although some of us are able to move on quite quickly, for others the process takes longer. We all grieve differently. On this national day of remembrance, I’d like to offer a few resources for those of you who were affected by 9/11 and need guidance in moving on in a healthy way.
Family members of September 11th victims established this organization in October 2001. Their goal is predominantly to support all family members, survivors, responders, by keeping them up-to-date with relevant information, providing other resources, and working to champion related policies.
This organization focuses on not only supporting those who lost loved ones on September 11th, but also educating the population through first-hand accounts and other means to keep this historic event stimulating and relevant to the younger generations.
Fiancés & Domestic Partners of 9/11
This is a resource for those who were in committed relationships, but were not legally married to a victim of September 11th. For more information on how to join this group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Let us not forget the brave four-legged victims of this attack.
If there are any organizations that have offered you comfort or help, please share them with me in the comments below. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are remembering loved ones on this difficult day.
