AN ATTACK HAPPENS IN AN INSTANT BUT THE IMPACT LASTS A LIFETIME.
A BIT ABOUT SARRI
On June 11, 2003, Sarri Singer was on Bus 14 in Jerusalem when an 18 year old Palestinian terrorist boarded the bus and blew himself up. 16 people were killed, including all those seated and standing around her, and over 100 people were injured. Sarri was hospitalized for two weeks and then returned to New Jersey to be with family. She has since appeared on television stations, radio interviews and spoken before Congressmen and Senators. Sarri is the Founder and Director of Strength to Strength (www.stosglobal.org), which focuses on bringing together victims of terrorism together from around the world and assisting with long term psychological needs.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“From the depths of her own struggles, as a survivor of terrorism, Sarri Singer managed to become a source of inspiration, strength and hope for so many. I have known Sarri for over 13 years.

Our guests were moved to tears, reliving the moments with her, but mostly because of the optimistic world views she shared. How this woman turned her personal tragedy into a global movement of healing is a lesson in inspiration.”
