Looking Back to Never Forget 9/11: Anita Foster

Our Chief Communications Officer for the American Red Cross, North Texas Region responded as part of the Red Cross relief team in the days following the September 11th attacks.

On the first anniversary of 9/11, she sat down with CW33 News to share her story. Today we reflect back with the understanding that a day causing unimaginable pain and suffering can now be a day dedicated to giving others service and compassion—a day dedicated to doing good.

We will always remember the sacrifices, the pain and the healing. We will always remember the reason we stand beside thousands of volunteers, each and every day during disasters, small or large, at home or across the country, for it is the same reason Anita Foster landed in NYC after the attacks—to hurt with those who need healing and provide hope for those who can see none.
