Egg Harbor Township, NJ – Flags at the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) will fly at half mast at 1:00 p.m. on September 11th, 2011, as the SJTA joins with the entire nation to observe a national Moment of Remembrance through a resolution by the entire U.S. Senate and in support of a Proclamation from Governor Chris Christie.
The 9/11 National Moment of Remembrance calls for every person across the country to cease all work or any other activity for a full minute to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and to honor the thousands of innocent lives that were lost.
“Taking part in this national moment of silence and remembrance is a tribute to all those who were lost, those who survived, the heroes who selflessly rushed to aide others and the loved ones left behind whose lives were forever changed by the horrific events that occurred on that day,” said Bart Mueller, executive director of the South Jersey Transportation Authority. “This is our pledge that we will never forget and we are proud to stop and honor them.”
The SJTA Emergency Service Personnel, ACY Airport Rescue and Firefighting departments will participate by flashing lights and sounding sirens at 1:00 p.m. on September 11th, 2011 as a signal for the public to stop and remember those who perished and to demonstrate the solidarity, perseverance and heightened awareness that the nation has shown since the attacks.
