With this year marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11, “memories, remembrances and memorials are going to play a big part of our personal and collective consciousness. How do we fill the void that was created? Only through action,” according to 9/11 Day of Service promoters. “This 9/11, we can remember by doing. By doing a good deed or act of service, not only are the events and people remembered but they are made valuable in the present. What will you do this September 11th?”
