September 11, 2001 is a date our country will remember forever. Although it was a day that began in horror, It was also a transformative time that brought members of every generation together. We gathered as one to mourn and to honor those who lost their lives, those who survived, and those who bravely rose up in service in response to the crisis.
Since then, millions of Americans spanning all ages have continued to come together on September 11th to serve and remember. Generations United believes that intergenerational service and volunteerism can strengthen community cohesion and enable us to tackle some of the most pressing issues challenging this country.
Today we honor the memory of those we lost by giving back to our communities.
As President Obama said in a recent weekly address, “We are one American family. We look out for each other. Not just on the difficult days, but every day.” Join us as we remember 9/11 and serve our communities to make a lasting impact for the next generation.
