9/11 is a day Americans will never forget. Two decades later, most people can recall exactly where they were and what they were doing when terrorists hijacked commercial planes and crashed them in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania.
Nearly 3,000 people died. The attack on US soil spurred Americans everywhere to band together and bring support and hope to one another. Tuesday’s Children formed shortly after the attacks to do just that, give hope to those who needed it the most.
The organization got its name from the 3,051 children who lost a parent on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Tuesday’s Children connected those children with others in the same situation and provided resources, including access to mental health professionals.
