Before the trading day begins tomorrow, September 9, 2011, the New York Stock Exchange community will observe a one-minute moment of silence in remembrance of the NYSE and NYSE Amex members and the thousands of others who lost their lives on 9/11. The moment of silence will begin with a single stroke of the NYSE bell at 9:25 a.m.
Following the moment of silence, ‘God Bless America’ will be sung and officials instrumental in re-opening the markets on September 17, 2001 will ring the Opening Bell.
The NYSE will close its day of remembrance with representatives from Tuesday’s Children ringing the Closing Bell. Tuesday’s Children is a non-profit family service organization that has made a long term commitment to every individual impacted by the events of September 11, 2001, and more recently those who have been impacted by terrorist incidents worldwide. Since 2001, Tuesday’s Children has promoted healing and recovery by strengthening family resilience, providing individual coping and life management skills and creating community through programs, mental health support and family engagement opportunities.
