6. September 11th – Moment of Remembrance

The Capitol Corridor intercity passenger rail service is joining transportation systems all over the nation to take part in a Moment of Remembrance to honor the fallen heroes and victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks upon our country. “Our local, state, and national institutions—including state and local governments, military and veterans’ organizations, the news media, houses of worship, and sports teams—have been called upon to mark this minute with bells or sirens to honor the victims,” said Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), the sponsor of the Moment of Remembrance resolution which was passed by the U.S. Senate.

Amtrak, our operating partner, is marking this important and historic event by blowing train whistles at 10:00 a.m., Sunday, September 11, 2011 and making announcements for our passengers to join us in a moment of silence. The Moment of Remembrance will last one minute.
