National Capital Chapter

Message from PRSA NCC Commemorating 9/11

Arlington, VA, USA June 22, 2012 Lighted benches serve as a memorial, honoring those killed at the Pentagon during the September 11 terrorist attacks.

This weekend, our nation commemorates the tragic events of September 11, 2001. We remember where we were when airplanes crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City, or the Pentagon in VA, or in a field in Shanksville, PA. We remember when we heard the news, saw it with our own eyes, or experienced it ourselves. Some of us in the PRSA National Capital Chapter were working in the D.C. area then, some in other cities or towns, or in college, or maybe elementary school. Others of us might have been serving in our nation’s Armed Forces at the Pentagon, in other U.S. locations or deployed overseas, including those who are now APR+M. Recollecting that solemn day, the National Capital Chapter calls upon all members to take a few moments to honor and remember those who perished or sustained injuries that day or in the days, months or years that followed. We honor their sacrifices and response to defend our nation. Let us stand together again as one nation to be the best United States of America and beacon of freedom to the world that we can be.
