September 11th is the National Day of Service and Remembrance, also known as 9/11 Day. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the 9/11 nonprofit MyGoodDeed with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. Honor this day by something as simple as a random act of kindness, but if you can kick it up a notch, why not?
9/11 Day, the international nonprofit movement to observe 9/11 every year as a day of charitable service, asks Americans what they will do this 9/11 to honor those lost that tragic day. Founded in 2002 by David Paine and Jay Winuk in honor of Winuk’s brother, Glenn, who was killed on 9/11, this day encourages millions to participate annually by taking time out to help others in need, in their own way. So DO!
- ONE MORE THING! We also need to recall what happened on this date in 2012. That’s when Ambassador Christopher Stevens,Glen Doherty,Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods were horrifically attacked by militants and murdered in Benghazi, Libya.
