The nation changed forever on September 11, 2001. Many Americans remember a country before and a country after, and for many young Americans, only a country after. Terrorist attacks causing tragic loss of life at the World Trade Center in New York City, at the Pentagon in sight of the nation’s capital, and at a quiet field in southern Pennsylvania led to conversations and reflection on American identity, patriotism, security and selfless service that resonate even today.
In 2009, Congress formally recognized the date as an annual “National Day of Service and Remembrance” — a time to honor the 9/11 victims and first responders through good works.
Join with your community members to honor and commemorate the sacrifices made that fateful day by remembering the heroes, armed forces, first responders, and countless others’ acts of service to help their neighbors and defend our nation’s freedom.
