Olympic soccer star Alex Morgan, who graduated from Diamond Bar High School,
will ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning to
commemorate the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Morgan tweeted on Monday.
“Honored to ring the opening bell at the NYSE on 9/11 to support
@Action_America. Become an #actionist & make 9/11 a day of positive action!”

This year, the organization is supporting the three causes – the National
September 11 Memorial & Museum, the Wounded Warrior Project and Tuesday’s
Children, which provides support services to families impacted by the terror
