Commemorative pamphlet
Description: This commemorative pamphlet, published by the Christian Embassy, was distributed at Washington, D.C., subway stations.

Context: In a democratic society, national events like September 11 provide opportunities for public discourse. Following the terrorist attacks, many organizations published commemorative tracts to offer support and subtly promote their cause. This pamphlet was issued by the Christian Embassy, a nondenominational ministry based in Washington, D.C. It includes messages from President George W. Bush, Darrell Scott (whose daughter was killed in the Columbine High School shooting), and evangelist Billy Graham.
