    President Obama greets volunteers in DC, helps paint

    Washington (CNN)- President Obama continued the commemoration of the National Day of Service and Remembrance for the 9/11 attacks by visiting a DC middle school and helping the Armed Services YMCA program called Operation Kid Comfort.

    He greeted volunteers who were sewing quilts for children of deployed service members. The volunteer-based program was created six years ago to give children quilts adorned with pictures of their parents. According to Operation Kid Comfort, the nationwide program has created 7000 quilts.

    The president also picked up a paint roller and did a little painting at the Ron Brown Middle School in northeast Washington. He helped to complete a blue stripe around the room and mentioned to some of the volunteers, “They don’t let me do this kind of work at the White House.”

    Earlier in the day, Obama laid a wreath and participated in a ceremony at the Pentagon where he spoke of the terrorist attacks 9 years ago that took nearly 3000 lives.

    Michelle Obama’s marks day of service
    Posted: September 11th, 2010 04:49 PM ET

    Washington (CNN)- First Lady Michelle Obama joined over 100 volunteers to participate in the National Day of Service at a retirement home for veterans and their families.
    Mrs. Obama was joined by Marie Tillman, widow of former NFL star-turned soldier Pat Tillman, students from George Washington University, and senior volunteers to help paint Vinson Hall in McLean, Virginia.

    The First Lady greeted volunteers and posed for photos but then got to work painting a loading dock along-side several students. She spent about 15 minutes putting a coat of white paint on a wall and then meticulously painting a pipe with bright orange paint. After the painting was finished, she sat with some of the seniors from the community and chatted about topics from painting to the weather and even issuing an invitation to come see the Rose Garden at the White House.

    Earlier in the day, Mrs. Obama was joined by former First Lady Laura Bush as the keynote speakers at a ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where Flight 93 crashed nine years ago.

    Hard Times Come Again No More

    Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears
    While we all sup sorrow with the poor
    There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
    Oh hard times, come again no more

    Nobody Owns 9/11
    And the World Trade Center site is not hallowed ground.

    Every year, the custody battle over 9/11 becomes more contentious. The current furor over the proposed construction of an Islamic center a couple of blocks away from the World Trade Center footprint has made this anniversary of the carnage at the towers, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pa., more prickly than usual.
    New Yorkers have thought from the beginning that the calamity belongs to them because, well, because they’re egocentrics who think that everything belongs to them. But New Yorkers would also have you believe that the day belongs to them because their city endured the greatest fatalities. (The Jerseyites who died? Fuggedaboutit.)
