The Newton Police Memorial Association has stepped up in a significant way to support the Newton 9-11 Memorial effort, not only providing us with the largest single contribution to date, but also offering to provide ongoing maintenance for the memorial. We cannot thank them enough!
- Our goal is to create a 9/11 memorial for Newton. Not just to memorialize the eight people from Newton who died that day, but to commemorate the heroism of the police, the firefighters, and the everyday citizens who reached out to help each other. To remember with sadness the lives cut short and with admiration the bravery displayed by the first responders who selflessly ran into the Towers and the Pentagon to try to rescue others, and the passengers of Flight 93, who rose up together to stop one leg of the attack. It seems that in every generation there is a moment…where there is a “before” and an “after”. Where you can ask anyone, and they will remember what they were doing and where they were on that day, at that hour. 9/11 is ours. We hope you will join us in creating a memorial.
