Tribute Exhibition in Fort Wayne
Freimann Square-October 6th and 7
First Responders On Hand For Opening Ceremonies
A traveling exhibition that pays tribute to the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001 will begin crossing the nation this September 11 to build support for the creation of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center. The exhibition tells the story of 9/11 from the perspective of families, responders, survivors, volunteers and everyday people who came together on that terrible day and in the agonizing weeks that followed.
Individuals and communities across the country will also have the chance to contribute directly to this historic effort by signing a steel beam that will be used in the construction of the National September 11 Memorial. The exhibition will include a detailed timeline of the events, photographs, artifacts and a short film.
The exhibition is part of a grassroots awareness and fundraising effort to involve as many Americans as possible in contributing to the National Memorial and Museum that will honor the innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 and preserve the memory of the events for future generations.
