Everyone who was alive then remembers where they were when they heard about the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the flight that went down in Pennsylvania. The timelines for the events of that day can be found at History.com. Please take a few moments today to remember those who died and those who live on because of the brave acts of the New York City Police and Fire Departments.
Today is also known as Patriot Day. So show your gratitude to the soldiers who have gone to war so that we may continue to live in freedom.
“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic, and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.” — Rudolph Giuliani, former mayor of New York City
