9/11 National Moment of Remembrance
While the nation has worked tirelessly to regroup and move forward from the tragedy, it is also important to take time to reflect on the lives that were lost, and the sacrifices of those who continue to risk their lives to protect our community and our nation.
In July, the U.S. Senate passed the Moment of Remembrance bill, calling for Americans across the nation to observe a moment of silent reflection at 9:00 a.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. MDT) in order to honor the victims, their families, and the heroes who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
Businesses, houses of worship, fire and police departments and other government organizations will ring bells and sound sirens as the rest of the nation ceases all regular activity and sits in a moment of quiet contemplation.
So please, don’t forget to remember on September 11th.
