How Will You Commemorate 9/11?

Ingrid Cheng & Kim Selbert

9/11 Laughter & Yoga for Peace: Facebook Event                                  Follow me on Twitter

By Jean Case

Ten years ago, our lives and our country were changed forever. Most of us remember vividly where we were when we first heard word of the planes hitting the twin towers and watched in disbelief as the day’s events unfolded. Tragedy also struck at the Pentagon and in a peaceful field in Pennsylvania. While that day and its aftermath was dark and difficult, we saw an incredibly bright light as our nation’s first responders displayed unparalleled heroism and people from across the land responded to the call to serve our country or the millions who gave their time and dollars in support of the victims and their families.

As a way of honoring the victims and those who rose in service, President Obama and the United States Congress have designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.  More than one million people are expected to serve this weekend in honor of 9/11. And while volunteering is a great way to observe this important day, there are a wealth of additional ways you can get involved, from creating a video tribute, to visiting a 9/11 memorial, or simply taking a moment in prayer or personal reflection.
