Generous Donation from American Airlines Flight Attendants

Thank you to the American Airlines flight attendants for their generous donation of $4233 to the Mass 9/11 Fund in memory of their colleagues who died on 9/11 2001. Funds were raised through a walk and t-shirt sales on 9/11/21. The “Walk to Remember” began at BC High School, who graciously donated their parking lot for this event. The “Walk” started at BC High and along the waterfront to the JFK Library. Once at the JFK Library, American Airlines flight attendant, Jeff LaForest, sand and included the reading of the poem, “American United,” written by United employee Susan Moses and fellow crew members from both airlines. The poem was written days after the attacks by Susan Moses, dedicated to the employees of AA & UA. Three eco-friendly wreaths, along with white carnations, were tossed into Boston Harbor. One wreath for each – American Airlines, United Airlines & First Responders.



Learning About 9/11: Education Curriculum for High School Seniors

As we mark the 22nd anniversary of September 11, we know there is an entire generation of young people who were either too young or not even born yet in 2001. To continue teaching the lessons of that day, we, the Massachusetts 9/11 families, have created an education module geared toward high school students that explains how events unfolded and life changed for everyone on September 11, 2001.

We also invite you to view the impact of this unique learning tool recently featured on NBC10/Boston.
