Dear Family Member:
Following the mailing you received from us in July, this letter contains more detailed information about the upcoming September 11th commemoration. I hope you will be able to join us at the National September 11 Memorial (9/11 Memorial) on Thursday, September 11, 2014 as we honor your loved ones.
Our observance will again consist of the reading of the names of the victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks. As in years past, the ceremony will take place on the Memorial plaza and the reading of the names will begin after a citywide moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. The program will observe six moments of silence throughout the ceremony-representing the moments each tower was struck and fell, the moment of the attack on the Pentagon, and the crash of Flight 93. The commemoration is expected to conclude at approximately 12:00 p.m., and the 9/11 Memorial will remain open until midnight so that visitors may view the Tribute in Light from the plaza.
