Never Forget: 20th Anniversary of 9/11

As we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, there are many feelings and emotions that may come to the surface. The reflection that will take place across the nation, and around the globe, on September 11, 2021, is certain to be abundant. If you’re wondering how to honor those individuals who lost their lives that day 20 years ago and keep their memories alive, here are some ways to do so:

Watch One of Many Docuseries Programs on 9/11

With the 20th anniversary approaching, many television networks will air recently made documentaries about September 11. Some channels to offer these special documentaries and docuseries programs include the History Channel and National Geographic. The programs provide a firsthand look into what happened on that day in history and the days that followed. Watching these programs provides a way to honor those who lost their lives that day and truly grasp what happened that day and beyond.

Donate to a Local First Responders Organization

On 9/11, 343 firefighters from the Fire Department of New York died that day. In the years that followed, an additional 110+ firefighters died from their injuries caused by the events of September 11. And this number is expected to increase due to the health conditions these brave individuals now experience because of their service that day. To honor the memory of these firefighters and all other first responders who gave the ultimate sacrifice to help others, consider donating to a local first responders organization in your area or one of the national ones.

Plan a Visit to the 9/11 Memorial

Although the 9/11 Memorial and Museum will only be open to families of the 9/11 victims on September 11, you can plan ahead and make a reservation to see the memorial and museum at some time in the future. The 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City features exhibits and events in addition to the impressive memorial structure.
