U.S. Attorney’s Office To Commemorate The 20th Anniversary of September 11

WILMINGTON, Del. – David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced today that his office will commemorate the 20th Anniversary of September 11 with a Blue Light Tribute to honor the fallen and the first responders and military members who continue to answer the call to duty.

U.S. Attorney Weiss is asking businesses and building owners throughout Delaware to join his office in this effort by placing flameless, battery operated, blue tea lights in their office windows beginning Friday, September 10.  Building owners can also light up their buildings in blue by replacing the white lightbulbs outside the building with blue lightbulbs.

“Saturday, September 11, 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon, and the heroic crash of United Flight 93 in the fields near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. We seek to pay tribute to the fallen, their families and friends, and the first responders who ran to the danger on 9/11 and who continue to serve our communities today. We ask all Delaware businesses and government organizations to join us in our Blue Light Tribute to those brave men and women--the law enforcement officers, medical workers and military personnel who dedicate their lives to keep us safe,” stated U.S. Attorney Weiss.
