Obama Proclaims 9/11 as Day of Service and Remembrance



In earlier remarks made today while commemorating 9/11 at the Pentagon, the President proclaimed 9/11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance for all Americans.

"That is why we mark September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. For if there is a lesson to be drawn on this anniversary, it is this: we are one nation – one people – bound not only by grief, but by a set of common ideals. And that by giving back to our communities, by serving people in need, we reaffirm our ideals – in defiance of those who would do us grave harm. We prove that the sense of responsibility that we felt for one another was not a fleeting passion – but a lasting virtue."
