A 9/11 public memorial will be held in New York the day after the 10th anniversary of the terrorists attack on the Twin Towers (Sept. 12). The September 11, 2001 observances, which will be held through memorials and ceremonies across the country, will pay tribute to all the victims who died in the attacks at the World Trade Center (WTC), the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, along with the military casualties from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The official New York City observance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 will take place at the WTC site at 8:40 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday, September 11, 2011. Four moments of silence will be observed to commemorate the times when each plane hit and each tower fell, starting at 8:46 a.m. At sunset, the “Tribute in Light” dual search light will light the skies above New York City for the night of 9/11/11.
President Obama is scheduled to speak at the Washington National Cathedral Sept. 11 to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the terrorist attack. It was announced he will visit all three places the planes struck; New York City, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa.
A first look at the Sept 11 Memorial
Albeit still under construction, there will be cascading waterfalls that drop 30 feet into reflecting pools built into the footprints of the Twin Towers. Surrounding the waterfalls will be a forest of swamp white oak trees and a lone pear tree, known as the Survivor Tree.
The Survivor Tree was nursed back to health after being rescued from the rubble of the WTC aftermath, only to endure Hurricane Irene’s wrath. But living up to its name, it managed to withstand the storm while exemplifying the mindset and resiliency of Americans.
Individuals who lived through the attacks of September 11, 2001, their families or the ones who witnessed it via social media may experience anxiety by the 9/11 anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Other people may even experience ‘flashbacks’ from their ordeal.
Re-experiencing these flashbacks (or any traumatic event) may bring on ‘acute stress disorder reaction.’ The sudden feeling of panic, anxiety and possibly fear may evolve into Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) if the symptoms persist for more than four weeks after the event.
