Pentagon Memorial Fund
Thank you for your commitment to remembering all those lost on September 11, 2001 and for joining us at the Washington National Cathedral as we reflect on the 9/11 tenth commemoration. On behalf of the Pentagon Memorial Fund, it is my privilege and the 9/11 families' involved in the Fund, to welcome you to "A Call to Compassion," the Washington National Cathedral's three-day series of 9/11 commemorative events.
The Washington National Cathedral played a significant role in the days immediately following the attacks on September 11, 2001. Just three days removed from the events of 9/11/01, thousands gathered at the Washington National Cathedral to express our nation's sorrow and sympathy over the loss of our loved ones killed in the attacks on the Pentagon, Flight 93, and the World Trade Center. Ten years later, the Cathedral will again unite the Nation as we honor the lives that were lost with a series of interfaith concerts, forums and vigils.
"A Call to Compassion" will again provide an opportunity to gather Americans together to honor the memories of those who were lost, heal the wounds caused by terrorism and war, and gain new strength to move forward as a nation. The Pentagon Memorial Fund is honored to partner with the Washington National Cathedral and personally participate in the commemorate events on Friday, September 9 and Sunday, September 11.
It is during this time that our thoughts are with our friends in Pennsylvania and in New York as they dedicate their memorials at their respective sites. It is also during this time that we gather together and reflect on the collective spirit of unity that followed the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. I encourage you to join with us again at the Washington National Cathedral to remember our loved ones, their families, survivors, first responders, and military personnel, to reflect on their sacrifices, and to renew the call to compassion that spread across this country in the days following September 11.
