Patriot's Day in Sunday


The 10th anniversary of 9/11 is coming up this Sunday. The Bend Heroes Foundation is organizing a special remembrance at the heroes memorial at 7 a.m. Sunday morning, that includes a proclamation by the Bend City Council. Heroes’ President Dick Tobiason says they will place flags at the memorial, adjust the flag on the pole to half-staff, and bagpipes will play “Amazing Grace.” He say there will be one difference they are asking all citizens to do: "A moment of silence. In the past, we've done a moment of silence based on the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center. This time its going to be different. In our case, the West Coast, Pacific Daylight Time, 10 o'clock, we'll have a moment of silence. So I think that's the word you get out to the public is that: no matter where you are 10 o'clock Sunday morning, just think of the nearly 3000 people we lost through terrorism in the United States." Tobiason says the moment of silence at 10 a.m. is something each citizen can do on their own, and he hopes everyone will take some time during the day to reflect on the meaning of Patriot’s Day.
