While we have time, let us do good.
- CEO, Tunnel to Towers Frank Siller
Greetings!

This weekend I’m excited to fly out to our nation's Capital to participate in a 9/11 commemoration event hosted by the Tunnel to Towers Foundation--an NYC-based non-profit organization that really is my charitable foundation role model. Tunnel to Towers continues to inspire me by their tireless efforts to honor their simple but powerful motto: “Let us do good.”
 
I first crossed paths with Frank Siller in the immediate aftermath of Brent’s death. Within less than 48 hours, Frank had contacted my family to let us know that his charitable organization, The Tunnel to Towers Foundation, would be paying off my home mortgage so that my children and I wouldn’t have to worry about making a house payment for the next 30 years. Since that day I have grown to respect and admire the entire Siller family for the way they have turned their personal tragedy into something that continues to bless hundreds of surviving families of military members and first responders across the country. 
 
You see, Frank’s youngest brother Stephen was one of the 343 New York Firefighters who lost their lives in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Since then they have worked tirelessly to pay off the home mortgages of hundreds of first responders and military members who have died in the line of duty.  
 
This weekend, Frank will be kicking off a special 42-day “walk-a-thon” in preparation for the 20th anniversary of his brother’s death and the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Frank will be walking over 500 miles from the Pentagon to Shanksville, PA to the World Trade Center between August 1st and September 11th. I have been invited to join him in the first day’s 12-mile walk starting at Arlington, Virginia’s Fire Station Number 5. 
 
It is sure to be an incredible beginning to a powerful 6-week countdown to September 11th. To find more out about Tunnel to Towers click here.
 
I hope you will join us as we join with them and other Americans from coast to coast in coming together to keep the promise we collectively made that we will never forget.

New Stories
Last week, we brought our cameras to Weber State University to record the unique memories and stories of different members of our community. These community members range from radio personality, Rod Arquette, to state dignitaries, like Senator Ann Millner, to Air Force pilots to firefighters and moms. Each one was impacted by September 11, 2001 in very real and different ways, whether big or small, the memories are forever.

Frank Siller and the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T) have been an example and role model for the Major Brent Taylor Foundation since the beginning. We are blessed that T2T stepped in to be the first sponsor for our WEber Remembers: The 9/11 Project.

This weekend she will be in Washington, D.C. helping them kickoff the Never Forget Walk commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11/01.

Did You Know?
The Major Brent Taylor Foundation logo features a saluting Soldier within an oak leaf cluster. The oak leaf cluster is the symbol for the rank of Major in the US Army. Interestingly, that oak leaf cluster has seven peaks -- so fitting for Major Taylor’s seven children. The quote that encircles the Soldier, “Service is what leadership is all about.”, are the words of Major Taylor from January of 2018 in his farewell message as he prepared for his 4th (and final) deployment to the Middle East.
