Ten Years Ago, On September 11th, We Wanted to Help

As the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 approach I remember how helpless I felt that day. I think so many Americans wanted to know what they could do to help and, unfortunately, there was not a lot we could do. The one thing many of us could, and did, do was give blood. A need we still have today.

The Red Cross sent me an email that put it into words much better than I could. It said, in part:

While heralded as one of the worst days in American history, the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 united the country and brought out the best of the American spirit. Nationwide, people came together to support the victims and survivors with donations of time, blood and money. Together, we responded, recovered and rebuilt.

As the tenth anniversary of this tragedy approaches, it is a time to remember the victims, honor the brave first-responders and rekindle the spirit of service to others. While we look back and remember, we also look ahead with a renewed commitment to prepare our families and communities for disasters of any kind. Be Red Cross Ready and take steps to prepare today.

Thank you for ensuring your community is prepared through your involvement with the American Red Cross.

If you can give blood the need will always be there and the Red Cross has three blood drives coming up in our area. Maybe one small act of giving from us will make the next tragedy, no matter its size or impact, a little easier to bear. We can hope.
