September 11th: A National Day Of Service and Remembrance
"This year, for the first time, the United States will honor September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Eight years ago, the tragic events of that Tuesday morning inspired Americans to come together in a remarkable spirit of unity and compassion."
"In that same spirit, we call on all Americans to join in service on September 11 and honor the heroes of that dark day as well as the brave men and women in uniform who continue to protect our country at home and abroad."
That's part of the message from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama asking Americans to serve on 9/11.
So as you remember the fallen from that terrible day eight years ago, look to the future and ask yourself how you can help make our country even greater.
