Abbey Marks 9/11 Anniversary
Monday, 12th September 2011
A service to mark the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 on Awareness Sunday was held at Westminster Abbey on Sunday 11 September 2011 at 6.30pm.
During the service a wreath was laid at the Innocent Victims' Memorial at the Abbey’s west gate by Dr Courtney Cowart, a 9/11 survivor.
In his Bidding the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall said:
We remember. We remember the moment we heard on 11 September 2001 of the attacks on the Twin Towers, on the Pentagon. Those of us who were there have their own memories that perhaps words can not describe.
We remember also what we saw. We remember not only the horror and tragic loss of life, but also the heroism, the generosity, the love shared in moments of crisis. We remember the survivors, the bereaved. We come together to remember.
