JUNEAU, Alaska - Sen. Mark Begich is asking Alaskan to set aside 9 a.m. Sunday as a moment of remembrance for the victims of the 2001 terror attacks.

In a letter to local officials, Begich says the U.S. Senate passed a resolution establishing the time of reflection and he asked them join in marking it in their communities as show of solidarity.

Begich says people are being asked for one minute to stop and remember what was lost on Sept. 11, 2001. He says cities, towns, firehouses, churches and other institutions around the country are being asked to toll bells and sound sirens during the minute both as a signal for people to stop and remember and as a demonstration of the perseverance he says the American people have shown since that day.
