Sept. 11 museum evokes strong emotions

Obama helps dedicate 9/11 museum at Ground Zero; families of Fairfield County victims watch with pain, pride

Frank Fetchet, of New Canaan, stayed away from the somber ceremony at the new 9/11 Memorial Museum, but his presence is all around the 110,000-square-foot underground gallery that was dedicated Thursday by President Barack Obama as a symbol that says of America: "Nothing can ever break us."

Fetchet, along with his wife Mary, helped establish and lead the Voices of September 11th family advocacy group out of their New Canaan home following the terrorist attacks that killed their 24-year-old son Brad and nearly 3,000 others. The couple along with a team of volunteers have been instrumental in helping families through the often gut-wrenching process of determining how their loved ones will be remembered for generations to come.
