I also wish to alert your readers to the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Commemorative Concert of the Minneapolis Downtown Churches at the Basilica of St. Mary at 8:00 P.M. on Saturday, 09/10/2011. The music is awesome and the program will be inspirational. The event is open to the public and free. Daniel H. Frenning M.D.
