Igniting the spirit of unity is the key to truly overcoming terrorism. Our ability to continue our way of life is what all the heroes of 911 and all of the heroes of our past wars have fought, suffered and died for
Las Vegas (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
With Bin Ladin’s death America has been reminded of the horrific attack on American soil almost ten years ago. The national 911 remembrance group creating Tenth Anniversary of 911 events nationwide believes the most important aspect of 911 we need to hold dear as Americans as we approach the event’s tenth anniversary is this: the way we originally responded to the tragedy -- by coming together as one nation -- is only way we will ultimately win the War on Terrorism.
After the horror of the attacks, we as Americans rose up together, flags and yellow ribbons on every house and auto, and political factions joining hands in unity. “Igniting the spirit of unity is the key to truly overcoming terrorism. Our ability to continue our way of life is what all the heroes of 911 and all of the heroes of our past wars have fought, suffered and died for,” said Shannon Alvarez, National Intercity Coordinator for 911 Remembrance, a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to creating a national day honoring the tenth anniversary of the 911 attacks.
For months 911 Remembrance has been quietly coordinating simultaneous “Tenth Anniversary of 911” events in cities around the country, collaborating with groups in New York, Washington DC, Las Vegas and other key sites nationwide. “Our goal is bringing together Americans to honor our police, firefighters, first responders, service personnel and other who have served, suffered and in many cases given their lives,” added Terry Revella, former New York State Police Captain wounded at Ground Zero during the attacks and later Governor Pataki’s liaison for the entire cleanup. Dozens of companies and groups have thrown their support behind this national movement. “This awareness and support will help us generate support for groups such as Wounded Warrior, The Feal Good Foundation, Fueled By The Fallen, Universal Solutions 911 Survivors Fund, multiple honor guards, USO and other groups providing services for veterans and other heroes.
“We want this to be a national remembrance of all those who have defended and continue to defend our freedoms, who have protected us in our homes and on our streets and in many cases have suffered greatly for their commitment to America,” concluded Ms. Alveraz. “We hope all Americans will share their pride and gratitude for these noble warriors, honoring them with direct comments from their hearts on our site, http://www.911unity.org, and by direct support of these national events and organizations.”
