    9/11 Remembered in Virginia

    by Casey | Posted on September 8th, 2011

    Where were you on September 11, 2001? I was on my way out the door, headed to class, during my final semester of college when the news came across the TV. I stopped in my tracks, sat on the futon, and didn’t move for hours.

    First Annual Virginia Freedom Festival

    First Annual Virginia Freedom Festival

    We all have a story and none of us could have been left unaffected by the events of that day. In remembrance, here are events you’ll find in Virginia this weekend.

    • September 8, 5:30-8:30 p.m. – Walk Through History Series: Inside the White House Bunker on 9/11 at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle – Come for drinks, dinner, and to listen to Lt. Col. Robert Darling, USMC (Retired), speak about his book ”24 Hours Inside the President’s Bunker: 9-11-01 The White House.”
    • September 9-11 – First Annual Virginia Freedom Festival at Chesapeake City Park in Chesapeake – Come in remembrance of the lives lost 9/11/01, and in honor of our military and public servants. A Ground Zero artifact will be dedicated and permanently displayed. Additionally, the weekend holds performances by Phil Vassar, Blackberry Smoke, Ray & Kasey Meks and River City Gang. Don’t miss the fireworks!
    • September 11, 6-7:30 p.m. – 9/11 remembrance Ceremony and First Responder’s Monument Dedication in Purcellville - Attend the dedication of the First Responder’s Monument. It’s made from the stone of a barn near the Shanksville, Pennsylvania site, a piece of steel from 2 World Trade Center, and a flag that flew over the Pentagon that fateful day.
    • See the 9/11 Angel on display at Miracle Valley Vineyard year ’round, Thursday through Monday, noon to 5 p.m. The sculpture was created by Lei Hennessey-Owen, and this is just one of many that she has placed across America. Henessey-Owen chooses sites where traumatic events have occurred or sites that are used for quiet healing of the spirit and body.
