Remembering 9/11

9/11 Memorial
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon. The Memorial's twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. more


Sept. 11 National Day of Service & Remembrance


“Working together, we can usher in a new era in which volunteering and more service is a way of life for all Americans. Deriving strength from tragedy, we can write the next great chapter in our Nation's history and ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the promise of America,” said President Obama in a proclamation regarding Patriot Day and the National Day of Remembrance and Service.

The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of a seven-year effort started by 9/11 family members and support groups to establish the service day as a way to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11 and to rekindle the spirit of unity and compassion that followed the attacks.

What's the Michigan Humanities Council doing?


The staff of the Michigan Humanities Council wanted to do something right in downtown Lansing, where our headquarters is located. Our building is right behind the City Rescue Mission so we have signed up to help serve lunch as needed and are participating in the Downtown Lansing Adopt-A-Spot program as well. These efforts are in rememberance of the lives lost on 9/11 and the many people who risk their lives to protect and care for our country and local communities every day.
