Sunday marks 10 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Town of Mocksville Board of Commissioners has issued a resolution expressing support for the United States regarding coming together as a nation and ceasing all work or other activity for a moment of remembrance beginning at 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time on September 11th, 2011.
Senate Resolution ~ Passed Unanimously
The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution (S. Res. 237) calling on all Americans to participate in a Moment of Remembrance on September 11, 2011.
For one minute, first responders, houses of worship, towns, and others throughout the country will sound sirens and bells in a signal to each of us to STOP AND REMEMBER the 10th anniversary of the tragedies of September 11, 2001.
The Families of 9/11 Deserve Nothing Less
Imagine for a whole minute, the only sounds heard across America will be church bells ringing, sirens sounding, train whistles along our railways. This patriotic chorus will send out a powerful message: “America remains united against those who threaten our freedom.” So this Sunday, at 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, stop and remember as we join arm in arm for the 9/11 moment of remembrance. Keep the memories of the courageous Americans that we lost that day alive ~ STOP AND REMEMBER, because the families of 9/11 deserve nothing less!
