The U.S. paused to remember the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks in gatherings, prayer and silence.

Across the U.S., Americans are pausing to remember the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001. According to USA Today, hundreds of families of the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New  York gathered and stood listening to the recited names of the lost over the sound of bagpipes. President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill attended a moment of silence on the White House lawn, followed by a ceremony at the Pentagon building. President Obama quoted the Bible and honored the victims’ families for their perseverance; he also announced new pubilc service projects on behalf of the victims.

WND Faith told how Christians around the nation took part in a National Day of Prayer and Repentance, a movement that began in April with a WND commentary by CEO Joseph Farah. This movement was endorsed by pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie, singer Charlie Daniels, pastor Jack Hayford, Chuck Missler, actor Chuck Norris and the Promise Keepers organization, among others. Hundreds of churches across the nation are leaving their doors open so the community can come and pray as they feel led.
