Ringing the opening or closing bells at NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange has become an annual honor for Tuesday’s Children’s families. On this 12th anniversary of 9/11, our family members opened the NYSE at 9:25 am EST, followed by a moment of silence on the trading floor.
Another group representing Tuesday’s Children rang the opening bell at NASDAQ, which then observed a moment of silence at 10:29 am EST. Amanda Gregory, Tuesday’s Children’s Junior Board member, event co-chair and 9/11 family member, served as our representative at the podium. Amanda delivered a moving statement about losing her father on that day 12 years ago and how Tuesday’s Children has been a significant part of her life. A Connecticut resident, Amanda plans to be involved in the development and growth of the Resiliency Center of Newtown.
