How Will You Remember 9/12?

The day after 9/11 has come to represent a day of national unity. The following mission statement from the 912 project still represents the fundamental principles of our country:

The 9/12 Project is a volunteer based, non-partisan movement focusing on building and uniting our communities back to the place we were on 9/12/2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with political parties, the color of your skin, or what religion you practiced. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created. Our goal is to bring us back to that same feeling of togetherness again.

Our Mission is to inspire individuals and groups to connect with their communities through education, service and dedication to the
9 Principles and 12 Values to which we have committed.

Benjamin Franklin’s message to the thirteen colonies was “Join or Die”. He knew that strong individual states unified against England was the only path to freedom. This message is even more valid today: only a unified society will “bring us back to that same feeling of togetherness again”.
