Learning Center Experience
The events of September 11, 2001 changed the world in many ways, and many people lost their lives as a result of the attacks on the Twin Towers. In 2009, September 11 was formally designated as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. During National Day of Service and Remembrance, Americans are asked to pay a forward-looking tribute to the victims, survivors, and heroes of the attacks that took place on September 11 by engaging in charitable service. The Corporation for National and Community Service along with MyGoodDeed are supporting the efforts across the country. Americans are asked to come together and volunteer their time to others in the same way they came together immediately after the attacks. The Center for Public Service invites you to learn more about National Day of Service and Remembrance and the organizations dedicated to honoring the victims of September 11, 2001. The events that took place on that day that will remain forever in the hearts of people all over the world and we invite public service students who would like to make a difference in other’s lives to explore volunteering opportunities or to learn more about National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Created soon after the 2001 attacks, 9/11 Day gives everyday people a positive way to remember and pay tribute to the victims…and to honor all those who rose up in response to the attacks.
Dedicated on September 11, 2001—ten years to the day after the infamous attacks—New York’s astounding 9/11 Memorial was near completion on the site of the original World Trade Center.
On September 10, 2001, my wife and I started moving into our new home. Two months late getting the house completed, we had grown impatient and were glad to finally be moving in.
In this article, Barbara Russo, department chair of fire science programs expresses the need for higher education in the field of fire science and emergency management.
On September 11, 2001, I was the coordinator of a Florida police academy with 80 cadets who were all hired by various law enforcement agencies. They were preparing to begin new and exciting careers. Shortly before 9:00 am, I learned that one of the towers at the World Trade Center had been hit. That’s when we stopped academy instruction. We turned on the classroom TVs minutes before a plane crashed into the second tower.
On September 11, Kaplan University student Armando Lopez, Jr. felt most proud to serve his community. When the towers fell on that awful day Lopez was at home on his day off; as soon as he found out about the tragedy he reported to his station. Although he was located in the South Bronx, all FDNY officers were called to Manhattan to help rescue survivors and aid the thousands who had been injured. Lopez will never forget that day. “When I reached Manhattan and saw everyone running around, it was very difficult,” he said. “But I knew I had to be where I was, I knew this is where I belonged.” During one of the darkest moments in American history, heroes like Lopez provided a beacon of hope for those most closely affected by the tragedy.
Kaplan University proudly supports the men and women who make our communities safer every day.
