On some days, summer recreation has to give way to quiet reflection. Today, Wednesday, Sept. 11, municipalities, government agencies and community organizations across the country will honor those who died in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Towers, as well as those who lost their lives on Flight 93.
The last day of summer is Sept. 21. Or, you can look at it this way: The first day of fall is Sept. 22. Patch has found something for you to do each day as we count down until summer passes us by.
These and other items can be found on our events calendar, and you can add your own.
Among the many remembrance events in the area, Arlington County firefighters and police officers will participate in a moment of silence as part of a commemoration of the attack. The public can join in the ceremony at 9:30 a.m. in the Courthouse Plaza at 2100 Clarendon Blvd.
