What they do…
These organizations help families in need, most importantly, the children affected by these attacks. They seek non-violent responses to terrorist attacks, develop memorials, and provide victims with people to talk to about the tragic events that they face every day, that they are forced to cope with. There are play groups for children who are all in the same situations. These groups give support and advocacy for survivors and all those affected.
People helping others.
What the terrorists did is tragic. The thought of losing a mother or father is unimaginable to us. We feel for the children that have had to go through such grief and suffering at so young of an age. We will always keep the affected children and their families in our prayers.
