This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of September 11th.  While we know that families across the country will be commemorating this event in their own way, we here at Great Plains Communications wanted to share a few of the national events that will pay respect to those who lost their lives and celebrate the bravery of the first responders from Ground Zero.

  • A National Moment of Silence: at 7:46 am CST, there will be a national moment of silence for those who lost their lives in the attacks.  The time marks when the first plane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center
  • Official Ceremony from Ground Zero: From 7:00 am to 10:00 am CST, NBC will be airing official memorial ceremonies from Ground Zero in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and Shanksville, PA— the site of the United Airlines Flight 93 crash.
  • History Channel Provides Inside Perspective: The History Channel’s website has hours of footage focusing on the new World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial.  The video about the making of the name plates memorializing those who lost their lives on 9/11 is especially profound.

There are, of course, countless tributes being conducted this Sunday.  For our part, GPC-TV will be airing a September 11th tribute.  If you would like to share your plans, please let us know in the comments section below.
