Emily Landis Walker attended the Annual Gala for the family group Voices of September 11th started by Mary Fetchet, whose son Brad died on 9/11. Emily attended with senior members of the 9/11 Commission including Chairman Tom Kean, Executive Director Philip Zelikow and Deputy Director Chris Kojm. Norah O’Donnell, Co-Host of CBS This Morning, moderated a conversation with Governor Thomas H. Kean, Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, and Senator Joseph Lieberman, former Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
The discussion focused on the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Report, work that remains to be done, and the new and emerging threats that have developed. The 9/11 Museum directors updated the group on the success of visitors to the Museum since the museum’s opening this summer.
