Today We Remember

An item from a fellow veterans organization in the Bay Area.


“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.” —George W. Bush

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Terror Attacks of September 11, 2001.

This morning, and every day, we remember the many souls who were lost on 9/11. We remember the airline passengers traveling in each of the 4 aircrafts, the men and women innocently going about their morning routine in the World Trade Center, the 412 first responders who lost their lives through heroic acts, and those who have succumbed to the repercussions in the two decades since.

 

The photo above shows not only the unforgettable image of the Twin Towers, but also a rescue truck with 6 firefighters from FDNY’s Ladder 118 headed in to help.  All 6 of those men perished that day.  20 years later, we remain humbled by their bravery.

One of the worst days in our history saw some of the most courageous acts in our history. Images from that day ignite an array of emotions: grief, disbelief, anguish… but ultimately, as we remember those lost on 9/11, we feel a renewed sense of unity.
