Grand Rapids is proud to be hosting the "9/11 Never Forget" mobile exhibit again this year, at the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. Beginning today at 2:30 p.m., through Sunday, September 11, the exhibit will be open to the public in the parking lot of the museum. And, in addition, it is the 15th Annual Community Day of Remembrance and Scout Salute on Sunday.
In honor of those who sacrificed their lives during the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, the exhibit 9/11: A Day That Changed America, on loan from the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City, and a rescue vehicle used following the attacks, on loan from the Henry Ford Museum, will be on display at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum (GRFPM) in downtown Grand Rapids.
This coming Wednesday, September 11 is certainly a significant day in the history of the United States. For, it was on 9/11/2001, terrorists attacked New York and Washington D.C., bringing the World Trade Center towers down, and damaging the Pentagon. Several thousand lost their lives as a result, and it's a day that all of America will never forget.
