The 20th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks marks a moment in the history of the United States like no other. The attacks cast a shadow over American life and defined the new century and a war on terror. The aftermath of these attacks was not confined to weeks or months but continues today. Keynote Speakers, Mark Desire (NYC OCME) and Mary Fetchet (VOICES Center for Resilience) presented on the hardship and perseverance through the eyes of the team and families of the victims. This commitment to identify all of those who lost their lives has not wavered.
