We’re just three weeks shy of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and while I suspect that many are going to engage in quiet personal reflection, there’s going to be a lot of commemorative events surrounding the anniversary. Newseum has announced today that they will be waiving their usual admission fees, and will have special artifacts on display, including parts of the Pentagon and WTC damaged during the attacks.

In addition, they’ll be running an 11-minute original short “Running Toward Danger” which highlights the journalists who ran along side the emergency responders toward the attacks, not away.

Newseum will also be opening their new exhibit piece on the role of the FBI in terrorism investigations before and after the attacks. Be sure to get passes on their website before the free days come.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
