In the video below (for those of you who cannot stomach another message from the Teleprompter-in-Chief), Obama lies when he says we will be honoring our first responders on 9/11. As we all know Obama’s BFF, Mayor Dhimmi Bloomberg has banned all first responders from the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Ceremony at Ground Zero.
White House – In this week’s address, President Obama called on the American people to come together in the spirit of service and remembrance as we approach the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. All Americans can pay tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11 by visiting Serve.Gov to find ways to help within their own communities. Through even the smallest of actions, we can reclaim the sense of unity that followed the attacks, and demonstrate that our sense of common purpose is just as strong today as it was ten years ago. Americans can once again come together to mark this solemn anniversary with service, and move towards a bright future as one nation.
By encouraging Americans to participate in service and remembrance activities on the 9/11 anniversary, family members wanted to provide a productive and respectful way to honor those who perished and rekindle the spirit of unity and compassion that swept our nation after 9/11 to help meet the challenges we face today.
Because of their efforts to build support for this idea, September 11 has been designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance was established into law by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act in 2009, and is consistent with President Obama’s overall call to service, United We Serve.
We encourage you to serve or support a cause on 9/11 as a way of paying tribute to the victims and heroes of 9/11, and remembering the remarkable way that so many rose up in unity and service following the attacks. Here are some ways to get started:
- Search for opportunities on Serve.gov.
- Organize your own service project using one of our toolkits.
- Use the “#911day” and “#IWill” hashtags on Twitter.
- Share your story of service on the Serve.gov Facebook wall.
- Place a September 11th banner on your website or blog.
