The National September 11 Memorial & Museum today launched a planning guide to help communities, schools and individuals worldwide develop their own commemorations for the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.  The downloadable guide, which is available at, includes tools and resources for honoring and remembering the nearly 3,000 individuals who were killed in the 9/11 attacks.

"In the wake of 9/11, we showed the world that the best of humanity can overcome the worst hate, and together we promised to never forget the nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children who perished that day," said Joe Daniels, president and CEO of the 9/11 Memorial, which has welcomed nearly 4.5 million visitors since opening in September 2011.  "We hope this 9/11 anniversary planning guide will inspire people across the country and around the world to honor, remember and reunite."
