14th Anniversary of 9/11 - Take a Day to Remember, Pay Tribute and Serve

With the 14th anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow, our thoughts are once again with all those who lost loved ones on that tragic morning. Our thoughts are also on all the heroic first responders, public safety workers, military service members and Americans who selflessly sprung into action on September 11 and in the days that followed.

The events of that day touched every American's lives. If you have a moment, please share your 9/11 memories and tributes in our blog comments and/or on our Hero Giveaways Facebook page. Let us never forget and let us always remember that freedom isn't free.

You can still purchase our United We Stand 9/11 t-shirts and pay tribute to all those who lost their lives and all those who stepped up to make a difference on September 11 and the days after while at the same time supporting our wounded troops.

To commemorate the 14th anniversary of 9/11, we wanted to share some video clips from the 9/11 Memorial YouTube channel. We hope you find the following 9/11 videos inspiring and informative.

Pay Tribute and Commemorate the 14th Anniversary of 9/11

On September 11, the National Day of Service and Remembrance, we can all honor the victims of 9/11 by giving back to our community. As noted on the 9/11 Memorial website, "There are numerous ways to participate in the annual commemoration and one of the most powerful is performing acts of service in your communities in remembrance of the victims of 9/11. When you choose to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11, you are playing an important part in memorializing those who were killed, honoring the sacrifices of the first responders, and remembering the spirit of unity that emerged in the aftermath of 9/11."

If you are looking for ways to remember and serve on September 11, the official 9/11 Memorial website is a great resource. There you will find links to information on how to talk to children about the attacks on September 11, suggestions for volunteering in your local community, and much more.

Make sure to visit the Commemorate 9/11 page on their website to make use of this valuable resource.
