A Minute of Silence
A 9/11 ceremony at Omaha’s Memorial park will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Omaha’s First Responders Foundation invites community members to gather at Memorial Park, or anywhere else, to observe a minute of silence at 9:11 a.m. this morning to remember those who lost their lives – including 441 emergency responders – during the terrorists attacks on this date 13 years ago.
Mayor Jean Stothert will read a proclamation and announce that the Minute of Silence will become an annual observation at 9:11 a.m. on 9/11. Other dignitaries will join her there.
“The minute of silence will serve to show respect for the 2,977 victims of the terrorist attacks,” Foundation Executive Director and CEO Ray Somberg said. “Then at 9:12 a.m. we will celebrate the resiliency of the American people and the tremendous fire fighters and police officers in Omaha protecting us today.”
