Obama to speak at National Cathedral on 9/11

President Barack Obama will close the 9/11 anniversary weekend with a speech at the Washington Cathedral, according to the Washington Post:

President Obama will end the Sept. 11 anniversary weekend by speaking that Sunday evening at the National Cathedral, often a place of symbolically important interfaith events. The White House announced the speech on Tuesday.

Obama will speak during the “Concert for Hope,” which also features opera singer Denyce Graves, country singer Alan Jackson and R&B’s Patti LaBelle. The concert follows a day of spiritual and contemplative events at the Cathedral, including a morning interfaith service and a forum discussion about compassion with writer Karen Armstrong.

Watch it live here.
