On February 26, 1993, terrorists abandoned an explosive-filled van underground in the public parking garage of the World Trade Center. The detonated bomb ripped through that garage, rocking the North Tower’s foundation and sending shockwaves of fear and horror across a city of millions and killing six innocent people.

Please join the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in extending our condolences to those who survived this attack and to the families of the six who were killed. We remember John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen A. Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado and Monica Rodriguez Smith and her unborn child.

In remembering the victims of both the 1993 and 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, we demonstrate the value we place on human life and protest indiscriminate mass murder. The six names of 1993 victims will be inscribed in bronze alongside the nearly 3,000 names of those killed on 9/11, rimming the waterfalls of the 9/11 Memorial when it opens next year.

Though the world has pledged to never forget 9/11, it is important that we do the same for the six stripped away from their families and friends seventeen years ago today. The 9/11 Memorial is dedicated to that commitment. Brick by brick we are building a memorial to the memories of innocent lives, in the face of the cruel intentions of terror.

We hope you will take a moment today to join the Memorial & Museum in pausing and remembering those killed on February 26, 1993, the families who lost loved ones that day, and the survivors of the attack.
Warm Regards,

Joe Daniels
