    9/11 Ceremony 2015.

    9/11 Ceremony 2015

    If you remember for the past 4 years I've hosted a 9/11 ceremony in honor of all those who lost their lives on that tragic day, and every year it was a big success and got allot of positive feedback as well (thanks to all of you for that by the way, I really appreciate it). Well now I'm gonna go ahead and get a head-start and make the thread for the 2015 9/11 ceremony. To see the past 9/11 ceremonies, just follow the links in their respective years below:

    2011
    2012
    2013
    Pirate101 2013
    2014
    Wizard101 2015

    The Premise

    The premise of this ceremony is to honor all of those who lost their lives on that fateful day, and to remind everyone that they'll still remain in our hearts for generations to come.

    What We'll Do

    What we'll do is parade around part of Skull Island on foot, starting from Circus Maximus, and eventually ending in in my Volcano Island house, where we'll give speeches and thoughts on the Ceremony and also the actual day/event that occurred all of those years ago as well. We'll be doing this in realm Vadima.

    The Path

    I'll bet you're all wondering what path we'll take. Well it goes like this: we'll start in Circus Maximus, since that's near the beginning of the world, and the rest will be as followed:

    Circus Maximus -> Bestia -> Avery's Court -> Skull Mountain -> Skull Cave -> Skull Island (Zone) -> Ancient Tunnels -> Skull Island Docks -> Blood Shoals -> Traitor's Cave -> Zadok's Cave -> Xol Akmul -> Corsair's Cove -> Devilfish Hollow -> Volcano Island.

    Rules

    Like all events, this one has rules that you should know/follow.

    1. Mounts are forbidden in this event. If you get lost from the group then you can use your mount to catch up to us, but that's the only exception, and you must dismount once you've caught back up to us (don't use this as an excuse to continue using your mount during the event).
    2. For outfits I would like for you to dress in all Black or White, at least for the Base. The Trim can be any color you want, though I would prefer if it was a dark or light color like Dark Purple or Grey for example.
    3. For pets, I would like it to be something that represents Life and Remembrance like a North Wind Lion, Celestial Dragon or an Ostrich in a Pear Tree for example. Wands and badges follow this same rule (i.e. no Undead-like wands or badges).
    4. No cursing or foul language.
    5. No rude, mean or any other disrespectful behavior.
    6. All Pirate101 Central and Pirate101 rules apply (you may say your Pirate101 Central name in-game though, as I don't see a problem with that).
    7. Stay with the group as much as you can.
    8. Listen to me and my Helpers.
    9. Helpers, don't abuse your position to bully and/or harass other players.
    10. Anyone can come to this event, regardless of whether or not they have an account on this site. If they don't have an account here and/or are just unaware of this event here in general, then just make sure that they're aware of the rules ahead of time.
    11. If some of us get caught in a battle, then we wait until they're done (this was a problem for the first year, where some of us got caught, and the rest of the group went on, causing confusion).
    12. You must have access to at least these areas of Skull Island.
    13. For chat, at least have Text Chat, so you can hear what everyone is saying.
    14. If you would like to speak, then please say so so that I can add you to the Guest Speakers list. This way it's all organized as to who speaks and who doesn't.
    15. Have fun.

    Date And Times

    Saturday, September 12, 2015.

    3:30 PM PST
    4:30 PM MST
    5:30 PM CST
    6:30 PM EST

    Why Am I Hosting This?

    The reason I'm hosting this is to not only honor the fallen, but also remind everyone that even though they're gone from this world physically, they shall never be gone spiritually from our hearts and minds.

    Extra Notes

    Like every year I do not mean any disrespect to anyone by hosting this event. I only mean to honor the fallen and to deliver the message I stated above.

    I also will need some volunteers to help me with keeping everything under control; about 4 or so Helpers should be enough for this, so if you're interested in helping me out, either post here or send me a VM or a PM.

    For Guest Speakers, they will go up to the podium and say a few words about the date to the crowd. Once they're done, if there's still enough time left (and if people aren't getting too impatient about it as well), then we'll see if non-registered Guest Speakers can come up to the podium and speak. Send me a VM, PM or post here if you're interested in becoming a Guest Speaker for this event.

    The reason as to why I am having the end of the event be hosted at my house is so that everything can be controlled better, as over the years of hosting this I've noticed that while hosting this in a public location is nice and all, it's too easy for trolls to come in and just ruin everything. By having this hosted in my very own house, I can help limit that as best I can by ultimately kicking/removing people who try to act up like that.

    I know some might think I'm being disrespectful by hosting this kind of event, but I'm honestly not trying to be. I just mean to honor all of those who gave up their lives trying to protect us during that fateful day and to also remind everyone that they'll always be in our hearts and minds forever. Also, if you'd like to take pictures and/or videos of this event, then please feel free to do so as well.

    Since the Wizard101 version of this event is hosted on the actual day, the Pirate101 version of this event will be held on the day after it to prevent confusion between events.

    Thank you so much for your time, as I really appreciate it.

    Thank you for doing this again. It is something we need to keep in our minds, and the people in our hearts. I will do my best to be either in the Pirate one or the Wizard if not both.

    Re: 9/11 Ceremony 2015.

    This is my first time seeing this (what seems to be) annual ceremony, and I couldn't be more happy to see things like this going on in the wiz/pirate communities, as this is something that deserves its acknowledgement, and I really admire what it values.

    I would love to help out with this event in any way possible, it is the least I can do for something I hold so close to my heart. I'd be honored to offer my services wherever needed.

    Thank you for keeping this annual remembrance going again, it is certainly something worth taking more than a simple moment for one to pay their respects to.

    I pirate salute to you, and a commitment from another community member to help keep the purpose of this present in our minds, as it will never be forgotten.

    (Amazing signature by the way.)

    I think this is a wonderful thing you are doingWhat happened to our nation on that day, and the people who lost their lives on that morning, should never be forgotten. I hope you keep hosting this, as it is a wonderful thing you are doing.
