Perspective: A WIS Editorial - 9/11 anniversary

This Sunday marks the tenth anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks in our nation's history.

All of us remember exactly where we were September 11, 2001, when planes hit the World Trade Center's twin towers in New York City, then hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania when passengers apparently thwarted yet another deadly attack. Thousands died that day on those planes, in those buildings and in the rescue attempts. >

This Sunday, we have a chance to remember the victims of 9/11. All Americans are being asked to observe one minute of silence at 1p eastern remembering those Americans who lost their lives on that day 10 years ago.

Cities throughout our nation have urged their citizens to observe this minute of silence, and we encourage our communities to participate as well.

As one individual summed it up, "This moment of remembrance provides an opportunity for our country to come together on September 11th to honor the lives lost and the sacrifices made by thousands of rescue workers and survivors."

Please join us in taking part in this National Day of Remembrance on Sunday, September 11 at 1pm eastern.
