QUILT (that) "isn't"
This site is dedicated to the outpouring of our hearts and the memories of those we lost. We invite you to explore and remember. We invite you to add to the quilt as a teaching or healing process with your family, school, church, organization or simply because it moves you.
It’s been our privilege, honor and humble work to meet so many Americans moved to share their feelings, thoughts and prayers. We celebrate our heroes and together, united, we honor their memories forever.
Ten (10) Year Anniversary...
One of the key elements widely overlooked during the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, is the cultural distance that is continuing to extend from the attacks, themselves.
While most American adults have some kind of personal temporal connection to the 9/11 attacks - a "where you were, what you were doing" when you heard story - we overlook the fact that the current crop of American junior high school/(middle school) and elementary school students have no direct personal memory of 9/11/01; for them, 9/11 is something they will learn about from a history book.
The next phase of the American QUILT Memorial (AQM) has entertained dialogue regarding shifting the focus of the American QUILT Memorial's national tour from public safety institutions to partnering with schools and other youth based organizations, inviting students creating and designing the remaining needed "dedication" quilt pieces for completion of the AQM.
