Eight years ago this month, a series of terrorist attacks brought down 4 planes, two towers, took thousands of lives and shook the world. Regardless of your religion or political affiliation, the attacks on that day resulted in nearly 3,000 people losing their lives. September 11th has been an un-official historic day in the United States, but this April it became official; when President Obama signed federal legislation to recognize September 11th as The National Day of Service and Remembrance.
The 911dayofservice.org site was recently launched by MyGoodDeed.org founders David Paine and Jay Winuk, not only to honor both heroes, victims and survivors of the 9/11 tragedy, but to also offer a positive element by suggesting we all do a good deed on that day every year. They had this to say about their mission, “we hope to create a lasting and forward-looking legacy — annually rekindling the spirit of service, tolerance, and compassion that unified America and the world in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks”.
