Excerpt from the Mercury News article:
Having endured a decade of suffering and sorrow, did the country turn a corner that has brought it to Kübler-Ross’ final stage of grief: acceptance? Has a nation that once swore to “never forget” at last allowed itself to move on?
Not a chance, says Dan Vetras, CEO of the software company Kontiki, who spent part of the weekend doing hard labor alongside all 50 of his employees as part of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. Transforming leaky hovels made of corrugated metal and rotted timbers into habitable homes at Western Trailer Park in San Jose, Vetras and the other volunteers organized by Sacred Heart hammered as if they were rebuilding the twin towers themselves.
