VOICES CENTER FOR RESILIENCE
20TH ANNIVERSARY REMEMBRANCE SYMPOSIUM
BY ROBERTA GOULD,
Voices Center for Resilience
held their 20th anniversary
remembrance symposium of 9/11
on September 9th and 10th at
the Marriott Downtown and via
Zoom. Remembrance, reflection,
and resilience was the theme as they
remembered those we lost, reflected
on our journey together, and looked
to the future with renewed resil-ience.
There were wonderful speak-ers
and peer-to-peer discussion
groups for families and survivors.
One of the speakers was Dr.
Bruce Perry, NY Times best-sell-ing
author of “What Happened to
You? Conversations on Trauma,
Resilience and Healing.” Dr. Perry
spoke about how growth comes
from stress, but when the stress
is prolonged, unpredictable and
extreme, a person’s resilience can
be greatly challenged and it is hard
to deal with grief and a sense of loss.
Now, twenty years later, during
the pandemic, people are again deal-ing
with similar variables as many of
their loved ones are dying of Covid.
Humans are social beings and now
they are being stuck in their homes
causing much stress, depression,
and a feeling of loss. Dr. Perry spoke
of many ways that professionals and
close friends and family are helping,
but for many it is still so difficult.
As a volunteer psychologist at
9/11, I worked with many people
and have since attended many
of these conferences. This year I
became a grieving relative as my
sister died of Covid. The funeral
was by Zoom and in a few weeks
we will have the unveiling followed
by a reception in an outdoor restau-rant.
I am missing Doris a lot and
I am dealing with the realization
that now I am the oldest surviving
member of our family. I listened
to the speakers with a “new ear.”
This organization reaches out
to so many people in so many
different crisis situations to help
people cope with loss and find
ways to build resilience. If you
