For We Are Change, the focus is Ground Zero on Sunday. Again, this is the last time until 2016 that the 9/11 Anniversary falls on a weekend. Be with like-minded people. I can tell you from my past experiences, it’s great to be with, and talk to so many different people, and some from all over the world. Every year I meet new friends, and see terrific old friends from past events.

If this is your first time, I can tell you that you won’t regret it. It’s so easy to start a conversation with anyone that you see with a sign, a shirt, or a pin, expressing 9/11, and all the feelings we have about the lies and unanswered questions.

Be with First Responders who are not invited to the Memorial Services because there is not enough room. Show your support for them and the Victim Family Members.

You don’t have to be an artist to make a sign, or a tee shirt. A simple question mark with 9/11 underneath it is perfect. All you need is a black permanent marker, a board, or white tee shirt, and you are all set. If you want a lower profile, that’s fine too. Just stand and be counted, so that we can show our numbers.

This is why I implore you to be there Sunday at Ground Zero. Don’t be sorry that you missed this. Come out of the proverbial closet. You may not have another chance.

The early birds will start arriving around 7am, and at this time we usually line up peacefully along the black fences of St. Paul’s Chapel on Vesey Street between Church St. & Broadway. The Official 9-11 Memorial Service usually lasts from 8am – 12pm with two moments of silence at 8:45am and 9:03am. During this time it is important to show the utmost respect for those who lost their lives that day and their grieving families so there will be no bullhorns, shouting, screaming, yelling, etc.

If anything changes, just walk around, and look for us.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
