Group Posts Petition Seeking a Day of Remembrance and Prayer for First Responders

The Fellowship of Christian Firefighters has a petition on the White House “We the People” Web site asking President Obama to declare the second Sunday in September a Day of Remembrance and Prayer for First Responders. For the President and his staff to respond, the petition must get 100,000 online signatures by May 11, 2014.

The second Sunday in September was selected in remembrance of those who gave their lives on 9/11. On that day, the hearts around the nation changed concerning first responders. There have been so many incidents since that tragedy; it is time to request a day to be set aside to remember those who gave and those who currently serve their communities.

This is the way the White House requires the petition, and the steps are as follow.

Please share with your family, friends, co-workers, other chiefs in the surrounding area, CERT members, Explorers, city and county governments, churches, etc. The minimum age requirement is 13.

If you have any questions, please call Ann Christmas at 314-620-7907 or email at
