As part of a national sign of acknowledgement in memory of all those who were lost in the 9/11/01 attacks, this Sunday, September 11, at precisely 1 p.m., all LANTA buses will pull over and the transit system will pause for a moment of silence.
The Moment of Remembrance will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2011 and will occur at the same time across the U.S.:
1:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time)
12 noon (Central Daylight Time)
11:00 a.m. (Mountain Standard Time)
10:00 a.m. (Pacific Daylight Time)
The Moment of Remembrance will last one minute.
“Our local, state, and national institutions—including state and local governments, military and veterans’ organizations, the news media, houses of worship, and sports teams—have been called upon to mark this minute with bells or sirens to honor the victims,” said Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), the sponsor of the Moment of Remembrance resolution which was passed by the U.S. Senate.
More information about the Moment of Remembrance is available at www.lautenberg.senate.gov/stopandremember.
Please join us in this silent, reverent, moment of tribute to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
