The art of peace and charitable trust dinner
September 11, 2008 event
Seven years ago, our City was shaken by horrible acts we still find hard to comprehend. The losses we suffered on September 11th, 2001 endure in each of us as a void that will never be filled. Yet even in our sorrow, as we reflect on that fateful day and those that followed, we can also find reason for hope: New Yorkers’ esiliency will never falter, and the promise of our City perseveres.
Today, as we join in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11, we recognize the incredible courage of our City’s heroes. The Finest and Bravest who faced danger head-on; the everyday New Yorkers who opened their arms and hearts to comfort others: their stories testify to the compassion and resolve of this extraordinary city. These qualities, like the memory of the brave men and women we lost that day, live on in each of us. I believe that they would want us to do as they did ‚Äî to look beyond ourselves. We can do that by welcoming others from around the world, creating a community of hope and prosperity for future generations. The New York Peace Angel Monument, to be unveiled in 2012, will be an important part of that process.
We take this day to remember the fallen. We will continue to honor their memory,
comfort the survivors whose lives have been permanently scarred, and build on New York’s promise by sustaining our City as a beacon of liberty around the world.
