In Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed throughout the United States as a terrorist attack was launched against our country. Hundreds of them were first responders, heroes, running without hesitation, to answer the cries for help. Hundreds of lives were likely saved due to these heroic acts.
Do you know of a special 9/11 event happening around town this week? Let us know and we’ll help get the word out. There has been talk through the years of making Sept. 11 a national holiday. On a note of comparison, Veterans Day originated in the era surrounding our nation’s Civil war, but it wasn’t until 1971 that it was recognized as an official federal United States holiday.
