It is the purpose of 9/11 Families for a Secure America to inform and educate the American public, elected officials and legislators of the obvious and not so obvious shortcomings in our Nation's security. To focus their attention on the dangers of unsecured borders, visa waiver programs, loose standards for issuing drivers' licenses, acceptance of matricular cards. We will make sure the public understands that illegal immigration and terrorism are inseparable issues. The ultimate goal of 9/11 Families for a Secure America is to prevent future terrorist attacks and to secure our Nation for generations to come.

Message from the Sept. 11 families of Bucks County. As the 9/11 families in Bucks County try to move on and heal, we are left without a place to mourn and reflect on the lives we had with our loved ones. This has complicated our grief process tremendously. Our nation as a whole has also been traumatized by the brutal attacks on September 11, 2001 . We strongly believe that the memorial park and garden will be a site for all to heal, rebuild, and truly celebrate life. Just as this memorial garden will contribute to our own healing, it will be a vital part of our community and will further our Nation's longing to rebuild the spirit of America.
