Friday, September 14, 2001: A National Day Of Prayer And Remembrance
White House-- Americans are being urged to take a few minutes today for prayer. President Bush has designated this as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the victims of the terrorist attacks. He's asking people to attend noon-time services at churches, synagogues and mosques to pray for America. The president says Americans pray for healing and for the strength "to serve and encourage one another in hope and faith." In addition to the services, bells will ring at that hour. The president's proclamation also calls for candlelight remembrance vigils this evening. K-EYE: CBS Austin
