This exhibit will identify ways for visitors to actively participate in honoring the memories of all those we lost at the Pentagon on 9/11 through “acts of remembrance”. It is easy to never forget, but harder to always remember because it requires you to do something. This exhibit will highlight opportunities for visitors to get involved with national or local organizations that support the ongoing spirit of response to needs that resulted from the events of September 11, 2001. Etched into the wall will be a quote that The Pentagon Memorial Fund has held close since our founding: Honor those lost, recapture the spirit of unity, be vigilant—Never Forget, Always Remember.
“We want people to remember what happened here. We want people to remember our loved ones. We want people to remember the feeling that swept through our country after 9/11.”
