Cathedral of the Pines
A reverent reading of the names of the Sept. 11 victims will be presented at the Cathedral of the Pines, in Rindge, NH. The milestone memorial will begin at 1:00 pm, on September 11, 2022, rain or shine. The Cathedral of the Pines is a non-denominational sanctuary. The public is invited.
The remembrance is organized by Remember to Remember September 11. It honors the 2,977 people who were killed by the terrorist attack against the United States on September 11, 2001. The solemn ceremony will take approximately 3 hours.
The theme of the memorial is from Ecclesiastes 9:11-12. “11. Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. 12. For man does not know his time. Like fish that are taken in an evil net, and like birds that are caught in a snare, so the children of man are snared at an evil time, when it suddenly falls upon them.”
The 9/11 victims’ names are read by actress Betsy Palmer, actor Jerry Orbach, Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at The Pentagon, Public Affairs Officer Alan Hicks of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANY&NJ), and volunteers at the New York Unit of the Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D) organization (now known as Learning Ally). Ms. Palmer read the names of the victims of Flight 11, Flight 175, Flight 77, and Flight 93. The volunteers at RFB&D recorded the names of the victims at the World Trade Centers and the FDNY Firefighters. Mr. Hicks recorded the names of the Officers from PANY&NJ. Mr. Orbach read the names of the NYPD Police Officers. Adm. Mullen read the names of The Pentagon victims.
Remember to Remember September 11 was organized by artist/poet James Pelletier, in collaboration with NYC- RFB&D, the United Nations, and The Pentagon. Production Director Todd Palumbo oversaw the recordings read by Ms. Palmer, Mr. Orbach, Mr. Hicks, and the volunteers at NYC-RFB&D in their NYC studios. Adm. Mullen recorded the names at The Pentagon. The United Nations Translation and Editorial Division offered their help with the pronunciation of the victims’ names.
