May We Never Forget

posted in: Holidays | 0

This year marks the 18th anniversary since the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001. 

9/11 is one of those events along the lines of Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassination and the Challenger Disaster in which we all remember where we were when we heard about the event.

In the day and age of 24-hour news broadcast, we were a community glued to our televisions as the events unfolded.  For most of us it was unfathomable the scenes and stories we were witnessing as the day unfolded.

The heroes of the day were our first responders.  Many of them sacrificed their life in the line of duty to rescue those trapped in the terrible wreckage and debris. 

None of us who witnessed the events will forget the horrifying scene at the World Trade Center, the panic at the Pentagon and the uncertainty over the downing of Flight 93.

World Trade Center Memorial

Today we have a National Memorial & Museum for 9/11 and a National Memorial for Flight 93.   Each year the World Trade Center holds an event to honor those who lost their lives in this tragedy.  The city of New York provides a tribute in lights to commemorate the anniversary. 

These events increased awareness to the ever-increasing terrorism we witness in our modern day and age.

Please take a moment to come out and thank these men and women who give so unselfishly of themselves in order to help others.
