September 11 not only left permanent wounds in the hearts of those who lost their loved ones, but it also left a legacy of compassion and generosity that shows no signs of abating. “As terrible as those attacks were, it was equally amazing to see a city severed by this incident come together,” John Orecchia '04 says. “All I wanted was to be a part of that coming together.” Here are some ways to get involved:
