9/11 Tribute In Lights

On September 11, 2001, The United States was attacked by Terrorist killing 2,977 innocent lives.  By September 12, 2001, OUR Governmental leaders promised that they would “NEVER FORGET” the events that took place just 24 hours earlier. 

Beginning on September 11, 2002, and every anniversary since, 2 beams of light have lit the sky over the World Trade Center site.  Know as the Tribute In Lights, these beams represented not only the lives we lost on that horrible morning but were also a beacon of remembrance and hope for our future.  With all the unrest currently going on in the United States hope is exactly what we need.  

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the members of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum and the City Government have decided it is too much of a health risk to allow the Tribute In Lights to shine on this year’s anniversary.  They have stated having 40 stagehands and electricians working together is too large of a risk to take.  

The City Government has allowed protestors to take over New York City streets and is allowing the Video Music Awards (VMA) awards to take place across the five New York City Boroughs, but 40 workers together in one area is too much of a risk.  

September 11, 2001 is the worst terrorist attack against United States, and it is a day we have sworn we’d “Never Forget”.   Dimming the Tribute In Lights on this year’s anniversary shows that our City, State, and Country is allowing what happened that day, to be forgotten.

Please sign this petition, which will be sent to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, and let them know why the Tribute In Lights should be lit on this years 19th Anniversary of the attack on the United States.
