Washington National Cathedral Announces Three-Day Commemoration for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11

Washington, D.C. – To mark the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Washington National Cathedral joins the three sites most affected on that day to present "A Call to Compassion." The program will gather Americans to honor the memories of those who were lost, heal the wounds caused by terrorism and war, and gain new strength to move forward as a nation. All are invited not only to commemorate, but also to unite in compassion, sharing in a commitment to create a more hopeful and just world.

Slutwalk Comes To DC

WASHINGTON (WUSA) --- The Slutwalks,which began earlier this year after a Canadian police official said women would be less likely to be raped if they did not dress like sluts, move to Washington this weekend with a rally and march that begins across from the White House Saturday morning.

Organizers of the marches have embraced the term sluts to argue it matters not what a person wears. he or she is not inviting rape.

The protests are also meant to change attitudes, one goal of Maryland State Delegate Ariana Kelly of Bethesda.

"When I was a teenager in Bethesda, I was raped. I went to the emergency room at the advice of The Rape Crisis Center and there I was treated by a doctor, and the emergency room doctor there did not treat me well. He was very critical and judgmental," Kelly said.

FBI Raids Giordano's Gaithersburg House

(WUSA) -- Friday night, the FBI arrived at Gary Giordano's house to execute a search warrant. He is a suspect in Robyn Gardner's disappearance in Aruba.

Earlier Friday, the Aruban solicitor general Taco Stein said authorities there consider him a suspect and that they are seeking a court order Monday to detain him longer.

When we asked if Aruban authorities had asked the FBI to search Giordano's home. Stein replied, "In our request to the American authorities there will probably be something about searching the house. But at this moment that request has not yet reached U.S. authorities. So if that place is being searched it's not on my account."
Stein said they will also need to furnish U.S. authorities with enough information to seek a search warrant from a judge in order to search the home.

Sibling Day At NIH

Bethesda, Md. (WUSA) -- When one child in a family suffers a life-threatening accident or illness the others may feel left out. It isn't always an easy road for the "healthy sibling."

The staff at the National Institute of Health started a program held each year, that recognizes kids, who can sometimes feel overlooked

This summer, a lively group of youngsters put on gloves and scrubs for a medical odyssey through the massive Clinical Center at NIH.

They're the siblings of children getting cutting-edge treatment and on this day, they learn about analyzing lab samples. What it feels like inside an MRI machine and they visit what can be one of the most imposing places of all, the operating room.

The idea of this event is to de-mystify some of the procedures their sick brothers and sisters face.

Konner Koch tells us "I just learned a lot about what Karly has to go through all the time."
