September 11th, 2001 is a day that many Americans will never forget. They remember exactly where they were, what they felt and the many emotions that encompassed a horrific tragedy in our nation’s history as many lost their lives and loved ones.
While we will never forget those who died, we will continue to pay tribute to all of those affected. Today is a great opportunity to join together and unite for good to help our neighbors in need – a mission 9/11 Day knows much about.
9/11 Day believes “in the power of one to improve the lives of many, inspiring individuals to act in service of others to promote unity, understanding and peace in our world.” Which is why this September 11th, we’re asking you to take back the day by doing simple good deeds.
