Scott Winzeler mug Habitat for HumanityScott Winzeler, Executive Director at Alachua Habitat for Humanity announced his organization will participate in the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.  Mayor, Ed Brady will read a proclamation to designate September 11th of each year as a day of “Service and Remembrance” in Gainesville.


The  “Day of Service and Remembrance” is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups, who worked to establish the charitable service day as a forward-looking way to honor the sacrifice of those who were lost and those who were united in response to the tragedy.


Victim Families Want New 9/11 Investigation

A “9/11 day of remembrance” can be important for an array of reasons.  Although the demand for a new 9/11 investigation is rarely discussed in corporate media, several families who lost loved-ones are convinced the government’s story is not accurate and amounts to a “coverup” of what really happened. These families and others who are skeptical of the official Whitehouse story deserve to be heard without being called “conspiracy theorists”.   After all, if dark forces were responsible for the 9/11 event that means the Patriot Act, NDAA, DHS and the growing police state are a product of a gigantic lie as an excuse to replace our Constitutional republic with an authoritarian regime.

Whereas on September 11, 2001, the American people endured with courage and heroism the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in the nation’s history; and

Whereas in response to this tragedy, Americans across the country came together in a remarkable spirit of patriotism and unity and carried out countless acts of kindness, generosity, and compassion; and

Whereas community organizations and family members of 9/11 victims began observing the anniversary of September 11th as a charitable service day to honor the memory of those who were lost and those who united in response to the tragedy, including first- responders and volunteers; and

Whereas the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, approved by Congress and enacted into law on April 21, 2009, requested September 11 to be observed and recognized as an annual “National Day of Service and Remembrance” and charged the Corporation for National and Community Services with leading this nationwide effort; and

Whereas participating in service and remembrance activities on September is an positive and respectful way to remember the lives of those lost, pay tribute to those who rose in service, and honor those who continue to serve our country today, including veterans, soldiers, military families, and first responders; and

Whereas September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance activities are being organized by a wide range of nonprofits, faith-based and community groups, public agencies, educational institutions, private businesses, and other organizations across the nation; and

Whereas on September 11, 2013, and on the days leading up to and following this day, citizens of Gainesville, FL have an opportunity to participate in activities that honor 9/11 victims and heroes by joining together in service projects to meet community needs.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Ed Braddy, Mayor of the City of Gainesville, FL proclaim September 11th a Day of Service and Remembrance in Gainesville, and call upon the people of Gainesville to honor the lives and memories of those lost through participation in community service and remembrance ceremonies on this day and throughout the year.
