Remembering the Fallen
September 11th is a hard day for the American people. Every year we are reminded of the great tragedy that cost almost 3,000 people to lose their lives. This year marks the 18th anniversary since three planes were crashed into the Twin Towers and the pentagon, and all across the country memorials will be held in honor of those who lost their lives, their loved ones and all those who lent a hand during one of the hardest times the American population has seen.
This year, look for memorials in your city to pay your respects. America is only as strong as it’s people, and your support shows that we have not forgotten what has happened but that we will always rebuild and come back stronger than we were.
