We need a national commemoration for 9/11

The fifth anniversary of 9/11 has come and gone. While there were many ad hoc events sponsored by various groups, there was nothing that brought our nation together to mourn the victims and reflect on the attacks. I was shocked that radio stations continued programming as usual during those fateful.

For future commemorations, I would like to have a minute of silence for all to sit aside their activities to reflect on the attack on our country and its citizens at the each time one of the 9/11 flights hit. This moment of silence would be invoked over PA systems in our schools, offices, etc., through church bells, over the radio, over the Internet, and more.

How could we get a movement started for a solemn national commemoration of this kind?
