President Obama Declares 3 National Days of Prayer and Remembrance to Honor 9/11


President Barack Obama has declared this weekend, Sept. 9-11, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance.

“I ask that the people of the United States honor and remember the victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones through prayer, contemplation, memorial services, the visiting of memorials, the ringing of bells, evening candlelight remembrance vigils, and other appropriate ceremonies and activities,” Obama said in a proclamation statement released by the White House.

As the nation prepares to commemorate and honor the lives lost in the horrific terrorists attacks, Obama said Americans must “never forget that day” and should continue to “draw inspiration from the survivors who still bear the scars — both seen and unseen — of that tragic day.”

He asked his fellow citizens to use these days to “reflect on the freedom and tolerance that define this great nation.”
