9/11 – We Remember

Do you remember where you were? I do!

On September 11, 2001 our Country and the global community would endure something that scarred its heart, shook us to the core, and struck fear in the lives of many around the world.

More than 90 Countries lost citizens in a series of attacks.

It was a time we all became painfully and acutely aware that freedom is indeed not free. Our resilience is what unites us. Unity is what helped us get through it. Unity is what will help us to keep surviving.

We will never forget!

Here are the names of the people who have died from 911 Attacks. WE REMEMBER!!!
