Continuing to put faces and names to the horrific events of the day is crucial to never forgetting the sacrifice that many men and women made — and continue to make. Let me tell you about a few of these men and women, some of whose stories are preserved in the museum and shared with millions of visitors each year from around the world.
Both are now sick with cancer; Sonia is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and both endure other 9/11-related health issues. Their daughter recognizes how 9/11 continues to impact these people, their families, their friends and all of us. “So 9/11 just doesn’t end for us anymore, does it, mom?” the Agrons’ daughter asked them.
The day before the Glade’s dedication last month, I heard from Sonia Agron, just home after weeks in the hospital. She wrote to tell me she would be there, and that it would “make up” for being in the hospital for treatment during her birthday and Mother’s Day. The next day, I found Agron with her family, and she proudly pointed to her daughter, who is expecting Sonia’s and Joe’s grandchild around Christmas. My heart broke as Sonia turned to me and said, “Now, they will have a place to come.”
Speaking at the dedication, Caryn Pfeifer recalled that her husband always said, “Do the right thing. Even when no one is looking.” Telling the stories of those who responded when we needed them most, of the health impacts of 9/11 and how they have shattered families and cut lives short is the right thing
