Washington D.C. – In the aftermath of the tragedy that struck America a decade ago, hundreds of AmeriCorps members stepped forward to help, offering assistance to the injured, serving as family caseworkers, and helping those displaced from Ground Zero find housing and other services. For many, their service was a life-changing experience, inspiring them to pursue lives of public service.
All across the country, the events of that day and the heroism of our first responders inspired thousands of then-teenagers and 20-somethings to give back. Many voluntarily enlisted during wartime and knowingly risked their lives to protect our country. Others chose to serve their country through AmeriCorps, meeting vital community needs in education, health, disaster relief, and other areas.

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
Worries about a meltdown in Europe contributed to weakness in U.S. equities and helped drive Treasury yields lower. The European Central Bank left short-term interest rates unchanged. In the post policy meeting press conference, ECB President Trichet continued to talk tough on inflation, but noted “particularly high uncertainty and intensified downside risks” to the growth outlook. An ECB official was said to have resigned over the decision by the ECB to buy Italian and Spanish bonds. Market participants feared a potential default in Greece.
The U.S. economic calendar was thin, but reports remained consistent with the notion of subpar economic growth in the near term. Bernanke repeated that the Fed has “a range of tools to that could be used to provide additional monetary stimulus,” but the markets were disappointed that he didn’t provide details (actually, he doesn’t know – the Federal Open Market Committee will debate the possible costs and benefits of its various tools at the September 20-21 policy meeting). «Read the rest of this article»
