Ribbons of Hope

“I just wanted to thank … you for your assistance and inspiration. Today’s ribbon signing event at Fresno State was such an amazing experience. Not only did my fellow club members of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) resonate with Groundswell’s message, but every individual that stopped to create a ribbon was so appreciative of the movement. We all realized today that each one of our individual narratives contains a common thread: the difficulty in deciding how to compress all of our feelings for 9/11 onto a single ribbon. However, we discovered that all of our ribbons together formed a powerful thread that represents each and every one of us- each and every one of our stories. “

Thanks Neama!  You can still submit a message online to be added to the display of ribbons. There will be a dedication of the ribbons on Monday morning in Battery Park.

And here are some photos of the Fresno State ribbon event.
