Sen. Tom Udall: Take a Minute on September 11 to Stop and Remember
In recognition of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) today released the video above encouraging New Mexicans to participate in the 9/11 National Moment of Remembrance. For one minute at 11:00 AM MDT on Sunday, September 11, 2011, Americans across the country will stop and remember, while first responders, houses of worship and towns sound sirens and bells in honor of 9/11.
“On September 11, 2001 our lives changed and our country came together to mourn, and out of tragedy, we joined in a spirit of national unity that helped our nation heal,” Udall states in the video. “Let's honor those who we lost and the sacrifices of our troops and their families by coming together to stop and remember.”
In August, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed S. Res. 237, sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and co-sponsored by Udall, calling on all Americans to participate in the Moment of Remembrance.
