National September 11 Memorial & Museum
It is an honor to welcome you to "A Call to Compassion," Washington National Cathedral's September 11 Commemoration Concert Series.
In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, many gathered at Washington National Cathedral with President George W. Bush to mourn the loss of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93. Now, a decade later, the Cathedral will again provide comfort and hope as "A Call to Compassion" unites us in the nation's capital. This concert series will provide a meaningful opportunity to pay tribute to all of the victims, their families, survivors, emergency response personnel, and our dedicated men and women in uniform, who continue to fight to ensure the freedoms that terrorists sought to destroy on 9/11. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is proud to be a part of such an important tribute.
As the final day of the "Call to Compassion" program begins on September 11, 2011, the 9/11 Memorial will be dedicated at the World Trade Center site. Family members of the victims will for the first time visit their loved ones' names inscribed in bronze around two reflecting pools, marking the footprints of the Twin Towers. The following day, we will welcome visitors from across the country and around the world.
On this historic occasion, our thoughts are not only in New York, at the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania. September 11, 2001 was a day of terror, but it was also a day when the bonds that unite us as Americans, and as a part of humanity, strengthened. Ten years after that day, wherever we stand, we will reunite in memory of those who were lost, in the same spirit of compassion that brought us together in our resolve to remember.
