8-22-11: Reaching Out Before September 11th
The tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks come up in less than three weeks. Marylanders will mark the day in many ways, including dedicating a memorial at the World Trade Center Plaza in Baltimore.
But the remembrance you might not be expecting is the invitation by seven mosques and Muslim societies around Maryland that you join them to remember the victims of 9/11.
Sheilah talks with Soophia Ansari, a junior at Dulaney High school, who will be speaking at the Islamic Society of Baltimore on Johnnycake Road and Dr. Syed Haque, a physician who is president of the Frederick County Muslim Council.
Soophia will be speaking at the Islamic Society of Baltimore on September 11th–you can learn more about it at their website.
