For most Americans, September 11th is a day of complicated emotions. It may recall painful memories and heart-breaking images. But it should also remind us of the patriotic pride and resilient American spirit that shined that day.
September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is a way to pay tribute to those who were lost and to honor the heroes who answered the call to serve on that day and in the weeks and months that followed.
As the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance approaches, we want to share this new public service announcement by First Lady Michelle Obama.
In it, she calls on Americans to remember the spirit of unity and compassion that bound all of us together and asks Americans to visit Serve.gov to find ways to pay tribute to the heroes of September 11.
Watch the PSA and share with your friends, family and networks to encourage them to honor the victims and heroes of September 11th through not only words, but deeds as well.
p.s. This PSA, Michelle Obama: Honor September 11th Heroes By Serving, is available for TV and radio in :30 and :60 second formats. In addition, web banners, badges, and search widgets are available for public use on Serve.gov.
