National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, 2019
                By the President of the United States of America
                A Proclamation
                During these National Days of Prayer and Remembrance,
                we come together to honor the memory of the nearly
                3,000 men, women, and children who perished in the
                terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The passage of
                time will never diminish the magnitude of the loss or
                the courage, compassion, strength, and unity displayed
                during one of our darkest hours.
                The horrific events of that September morning shook our
                Nation to its core as we watched in disbelief as the
                chaos unfolded. Yet in the midst of loss and
                destruction, a renewed pride, patriotism, and
                appreciation for the precious blessings of life and
                liberty filled our soul. We pause, therefore, to
                remember not merely our pain and sorrow from that day
                but also our will, our fortitude, and our reinvigorated
                unity and love for our fellow Americans.
                Since the founding of our Republic, we have proclaimed
                reliance on Almighty God. Prayer has sustained and
                guided the leaders and citizens of this great Nation in
                times of peace and prosperity and in times of conflict
                and disaster. Thus, it is fitting that we again turn to
                our Creator for wisdom, comfort, and peace on this
                somber occasion, praying for those who lost loved ones
                at the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, and in
                Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and for all who bear the
                wounds, seen and unseen, of these tragedies. We also
                pray for our first responders who risk their own lives
                to rescue others in peril, and continue to do so day in
                and day out, as well as for our men and women in the
                military who protect our homeland, serving a cause
                greater than themselves.
                The United States has endured many trials, yet few
                events have challenged our resolve as the events of
                September 11, 2001. On that fateful day, our faith was
                challenged, but never lost; our Nation wept, but could
                not be defeated. Through the devastation, we emerged
                stronger. During these commemorative days, may we unite
                in prayer and remembrance and do our part to ensure
                that future generations never forget this immeasurable
                tragedy or ever doubt this Nation's extraordinary
                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the
                United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 6,
                through Sunday, September 8, 2019, as National Days of
                Prayer and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the
                United States mark these National Days of Prayer and
                Remembrance with prayer, contemplation, memorial
                services, the visiting of memorials, the ringing of
                bells, and evening candlelight remembrance vigils. I
                invite all people around the world to share in these
                Days of Prayer and Remembrance.
