How do you commemorate Sept. 11 — without being tacky?

12 Sep

The anniversary of a tragedy — especially the 10th anniversary — is tough to ignore.

How do we highlight the important work of our organizations without capitalizing on a tragedy? How do we pay tribute to the activities and people who responded without crossing a line? How we answer these questions says a great deal about our ethics and our priorities.
