9/11 “Cry Out America” Event for Livingston Parish
Post date: Jul 21, 2015 4:40:18 PM
Today, more than ever, America faces trying times. There’s uncertainty in our national security, and for the future of our people and our nation. Threats and acts of terrorism and war at home and abroad, economic dependence and instability, divisive legislative policies, crumbling family units, tests of our faith, and challenges to our beliefs, our rights, our educational systems and our spiritual institutions weigh heavily upon us all. America is becoming a nation divided. If we do not stand united, together we will fall. We must “cry out for America” together.
The 2015 “Cry Out America,” 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony & Prayer Service, will be held in the Livingston Parish Council Chambers, 20355 Government Blvd., Livingston, at 11:45 a.m., Friday, September 11. Citizens, businesses, government agencies, schools and churches are encouraged to take an hour off to come together as a parish on this historic day that monumentally changed our lives and our world forever.
May we never forget the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Standing united against terrorism, Americans will gather at noon in courthouses all across our great nation to remember and honor the many sacrifices made on that fateful day. In one accord, prayers will be voiced for our federal, state and local governments and leaders, judicial system, educational system, military, first responders, youth and children, marriage and families, churches, media, and for the unity and future of America. Patriotic music and readings will be shared, and for one hour of our time, we can unite our voices, our hearts, our prayers and our spirits - and we can make a difference.
The Chief Judge of the 21st JDC, Honorable Bob Morrison, will be this year’s Master of Ceremonies. Program participants will include ranking members of the Judiciary and Legislative branches, officials and leaders in Livingston Parish, and local clergy. Church and school leaders are asked to encourage their congregations and students to attend.
