LOS ANGELES, Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, September 11, individuals and families across America will recall the unforgettable day, September 11, 2001, when tragedy struck as terrorists commandeered three jetliners and used them as deadly weapons against our nation. Trinity Broadcasting Network will join in that observance, September 9 through 11, as it airs a series of special programs to memorialize the tragedy and those who died, as well as to remember the courage and miracles that helped to define the aftermath of the tragedy.
While thousands perished at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in the field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the perpetrators of those attacks failed in their goal of demoralizing America, as the nation rose in unity to fight back. And the amazing accounts of heroism in the air and on the ground, as well as the stories of God's miraculous intervention in the hours and days following the attacks, continue to inspire millions around the world to courage and faith.
Each year TBN memorializes the 9/11 tragedy, and among the special programs scheduled for this year's remembrance are:
- A Reason to Remember.

Salvation Army Commissioner Joe Noland, who remained at "Ground Zero" of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of the attacks as he helped oversee the humanitarian effort, said that it is crucial for the nation to remember the attacks, those who died, and those who responded in selfless courage. "More than a decade later we are compelled to recall the everyday heroes in those horrific moments," he said, "which is why TBN's commitment to broadcast these specials is so important. Telling the real story is a vital service to us all."
In addition to these moving and inspiring programs, TBN will also air a number of other specials in observance of the 9/11 tragedy. For a complete listing check TBN's daily broadcast schedule.
Dr. Paul Crouch TBN's founder and President, said the network has been humbled and honored in the years since 9/11 to help individuals remember the tragedy and those who died. "Perhaps the greatest gift that Americans can give is to provide a yearly tribute of remembrance and respect for the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks on that day in 2001."
