The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., is scaling back plans to commemorate the anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, according to CBN News. In past years, the cathedral hosted events that drew the attendance of presidents and other leaders, but this year the church will mark the day with prayers during regularly scheduled events rather than holding a larger event. The interim dean, Rev. Dr. Francis Wade, said in statement he hoped the decision would help the country heal and "move past the tragedy."
