I learned about September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows after reading Julia Rodriguez’s article about Guantánamo in the NY Times in November 2018.I was excited to join a community of people who are committed to using their loss to spread a message of peace. My father worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, and was killed in the attacks. I was very young in 2001, so I’ve only recently become aware of the extent of the hateful rhetoric and actions that were inspired (or justified) by the attacks. I hope to learn more about Peaceful Tomorrows’ Rule of Law campaign and action in support of closing Guantánamo. I want to turn my loss into action, and use my perspective to advance a message of justice and peace. I am currently a senior and study Ethics, Politics, and Economics.
