Pepperdine to Mark 10th Anniversary of 9/11 with Remembrance Day

A reading of the names of the 2,977 people who died in the terrorist attacks and other events will take place at the Malibu university on Sunday.

Pepperdine University in Malibu will host a Remembrance for the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on Sunday that promises to be powerful and memorable. The 10th anniversary remembrance will begin at 11 a.m. with a reading of the names of the 2,977 people who died and will conclude with a ceremony at 4 p.m. Both events will take place at Alumni Park.


Also, there will be a screening of United 93, a film about the passengers—including Pepperdine alumnus Thomas Burnett—who brought down one of the planes intended to strike an American structure. The screening will take place at 1 p.m. at Elkins Auditorium.

The traditional display of nearly 3,000 flags—representing each person who died—on the university's front lawn is being installed this week. Called the Wave of Flags, it aims to be a powerful reminder of the terrorist attacks that left the world stunned and scarred.

Also on Sunday, Pepperdine's Heroes Garden will be open throughout the day except from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. when it will be closed for a private ceremony. The garden will be rededicated in memory of Burnett.

Burnett's widow, Deena Burnett Bailey, will speak during the afternoon ceremony. Also expected to speak are Pepperdine President Andrew K. Benton and California Assemblywoman Julia Brownley.

The screening of United 93 will be followed by a talk with actor Christian Clemenson, who played Burnett in the film. Craig Detweiler, director of Pepperdine's Center for Entertainment Media and Culture, will host the conversation.

Pepperdine is located at 24255 Pacific Coast Highway. All events are free and open to the public. Go here for more information.
