Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11, when more than 3,000 people were killed in terrorist attacks in the United States.
For many Americans, the tragic events of 9/11 instill a renewed sense of patriotism and an incentive to serve others. Here are some ways that you can reflect, serve, and remember this September 11:
- Observe a moment of silence. Many Americans observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time), marking the exact moment Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center.
- Volunteer for service. September 11 is a National Day of Service and Remembrance, when you can volunteer in your community.
