A National Day Of Service And Remembrance

9/11: A 'National Day Of Service And Remembrance'

This September 11, President Barack Obama has asked the country to pay tribute to the tragic attacks on the World Trade Center through action, dubbing the anniversary as a day of "service and remembrance."

Rather than just remember the lives of those lost, his hope is that thousands of Americans will take part in service-related activities to "rekindle the spirit of unity and common purpose felt in the wake of the 2001 terror attacks," he said in a press conference Friday.

To help achieve this, a new and innovative website, 9/11 National Day of Service offers ways for Americans to make their actions on September 11 felt year-round.

The Obama administration's goal is to have 100,000 organizations join the site between now and the 10th anniversary of 9/11 so people can locate volunteer opportunities across the country.

Partner networks including the Corporation for National and Community Service, HandsOn Network and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum ("9/11 Memorial") provide volunteer opportunities, charitable causes and remembrance-related activities.

That's a wonderful way to remember and honour those who lost their lives, and those who worked so hard to retrieve the human remains.
