This Week on MNN: Remembering 9/11

Join MNN as we remember and honor the victims, survivors and first responders that were impacted on that dreadful day. 

Open to Hope is a program hosted by mother and daughter duo Dr.’s Gloria and Heidi Horsley.  These amazing women are therapists who specialize in grief counseling and help people find hope in their loss. In this episode Dr. Heidi talks with Dave Turner, a retired FDNY Firefighter who lost 15 of his FDNY brothers during the  9/11 attacks. His Firehouse, which was located in Midtown Manhattan, was the only one to have an entire shift killed. 

Dr. Heidi also talks with Carrie Pike, founder of Carrie Bears, a company that helps family members honor loved ones who have passed on by taking something special like a shirt, favorite blanket or uniform to create a teddy bear. Carrie joined the Caring Connection to make 422 Carrie Bears for each of the fallen FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority families. 

Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with Love & Peace is a program produced by Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy and The Federation of World Peace and Love, organizations that promote world peace through cultural exchanges and conferences around the world. In this episode members talk about their experiences on September 11, 2001 and the importance of love and empathy in order to achieve peace within ourselves. 

Watch these moving stories Sunday, September 12 at 1PM and Wednesday, September 15 at 7PM on MNN 5 (Spectrum 1993).
