MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Ten years ago this Sunday the worst terrorist attacks in our nation's history occurred.  All of us most likely can remember where we were when the planes hit the twin towers in New York, another hit the Pentagon and a fourth crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside as passengers thwarted terrorists.

Thousands died that day.

This Sunday at noon all of us have a chance to remember the victims and heroes of 9/11.  All Americans are being asked to observe one minute of silence this weekend.  We believe this would be a fitting way for church services to end Sunday morning services and we encourage local churches to consider.

On WSFA 12 News we plan at noon to have a moment of silence remembering those Americans who lost their lives.  We encourage the mayors of Alabama to urge their citizens to observe this moment of silence.

One person summed it up this way, "This moment of Remembrance provides an opportunity for our country to come together on September 11th to honor the lives lost and the sacrifices made by thousands of rescue workers and survivors."

Please take part in this National Day of Remembrance.

We welcome your feedback.
