Whereas on September 11, 2001, thousands of innocent people were killed 
  and injured in combined terrorist attacks involving four hijacked 
  airliners, the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon;

Whereas in the aftermath of the attacks, thousands more were left 
  grieving for beloved family and friends, livelihoods were 
  compromised, and businesses and property were damaged and lost;

Whereas the greatest loss of life, personal injury, and physical 
  destruction occurred in and was sustained by the City of New York;

Whereas Government and the American people responded decisively, 
  through the bravery, sacrifice and toil of the fire and rescue 
  workers, law enforcement, building trades, caregivers, Armed Forces, 
  and millions more who through their many expressions of care and 
  compassion brought forth comfort, hope, and the promise of recovery;

Whereas the City of New York attended to the aftermath of the 
  destruction of the World Trade Center with profound respect for the 
  victims and compassion to the survivors; and

Whereas the City of New York has invited the Congress to meet at the 
  site of the original Federal Hall, where the First Congress of the 
  United States convened on March 4, 1789: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That, in remembrance of the victims and the heroes of September 11, 
2001, and in recognition of the courage and spirit of the City of New 
York, the Congress shall conduct a special meeting in Federal Hall in 
New York, New York, on September 6, 2002.

                                 Clerk of the House of Representatives.


                                               Secretary of the Senate.
