11 Days Til Autumn: 11 September Remembrance Day

Autumn is just 11 short days away. So how best should we celebrate the last days of summer? Better yet Americans how do you plan on remembering the 17th anniversary of 9/11?

Tip #8:
First of all, don't forget to put out your American flag in memory of the 2,996 innocent human beings and 11 unborn babies who lost their lives, as well as the service men and women who died or were wounded in Operation Enduring Freedom.

How about donating blood to the Red Cross in solidarity with the 6k+ men and women who were wounded?

Consider attending a 9/11 stair climb in honor of the fallen firefighters. A list of official events are here.

Why not visit a local 9/11 memorial or one of the permanent memorials in Manhattan, Pennsylvania or D.C.? Those in SoCal can visit a local 9/11 memorial in Beverly Hills with services at 6:45am and 5:30pm. Londoners can visit the September 11 Memorial Garden in Grosvenor Square Garden.

Lastly, try volunteering as part of the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.

If you have any memories and/or names you want remembered please share them in the comments below.

Come back tomorrow for another tip. x Joy
