A few weeks ago I was looking at the calendar to plan out some of my regular post series like Pass the Peace. And it hit me, the second Tuesday is 9/11. How poignant! I found a perfect topic for today’s post-the 9/11 Day Movement.
9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. We created this observance soon after 9/11 to provide a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way
I will, take baked goods to a local Fire Station. I will thank them for their courage and dedication to our community. I will honor those who served in NY, by honoring those who serve down the street. I will take my kids with me so they will learn to appreciate the Freedom and Protection we have and who helps makes it possible!
What is your pledge today?
