With Deep Gratitude

This endeavor could not have been possible without every person who brought their love, desperation to help and steadfast devotion every single day.

Some came whenever they could — some only a few times, while others made this their new full-time job.

From one of the most horrific experiences on this earth came our connection. We came together to help in whatever way we could. We share a bond that has helped heal us all. We became helpers and messengers. We received love and passed it on. This most simple human act is what this project has always been about. And it is what will always be at the center of making a better world.

To each and every person who touched these letters and contributed to making this website possible...



There would be no website without the wonderful team at Xerox who loaned us scanners, set up our DropBox, managed all these documents and built this website. I am indebted to you all.


A special thank you to Milton for permission to use his song “Sometimes” from his album, Milton.
