A few years back, the lives of every American was changed forever by an unforgettable act of terrorism. Today, as we remember the victims and heroes of 9/11, we will pay tribute to the men, women and children who lost their lives, the heroes who responded to the unfortunate crisis and the family that was left behind.
These events in Arizona remembering 9/11 are an excellent opportunity to share personal experiences on how the events of 9/11 have changed the lives of many – not only us Americans but all the people from all over the world. This is also a favorable time to educate our children and show patronage and support for the nation. Here is a list of some upcoming events.
Commemorate 9/11 – Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts
Scottsdale, AZ will commemorate 9/11 by displaying the “National Unity Flag” at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.

9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance – City of Mesa, Arizona
The City of Mesa will commemorate 9/11 with a Day of Service and Remembrance. Together with the community partners, they will perform community service for those in need to keep the spirit of unity alive during the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. They will be supporting veterans living in Mesa with the maintenance of their homes starting on 9/11. These residents are in need of assistance due to limited financial resources and/or physical limitations and disabilities. For a list of opportunities on this project, visit the City of Mesa.
9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance – Various Places
Hands on Phoenix volunteers will participate in the Tribute Projects around the Valley. The projects focuses on assisting and recognizing the first responders, current military personal and veterans. In Phoenix, the volunteers will join together with the communities across the United States as we commemorate a tragic event in American history by giving our time to create positive change.
Although Arizona was not directly affected by the 9/11 attack as the unfortunate attack happened in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, communities throughout the country are commemorating the day. If you want a worthwhile activity for remembering 9/11, this is a great opportunity to honor, serve and pay tribute to the soldiers and responders who rose up in service in response to the attack.
