Commemorating 9/11: Ensuring the Legacy Lives On

September 11, 2023

As we commemorate September 11, 2001, we find ourselves reflecting on a day that we fervently wish had never happened. The events of that day brought immeasurable sorrow and forever changed the lives of countless individuals.

We mourn the 2,983 lives lost, and we grieve with the families and friends who continue to feel the profound impact of this tragedy. Our collective wish is for a world where such acts of violence and devastation never take place.

Twenty years ago, the world witnessed an unthinkable tragedy as the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City were struck by terrorist attacks, leading to the loss of thousands of innocent lives. The Pentagon was also targeted, and Flight 93 heroically crashed in Pennsylvania, thwarting another attack. The events of that day shook us to our core, leaving an indelible mark on our nation's history.

It is crucial that we remember this day to honor the lives lost, the heroes who emerged, and the resilience of the American spirit. Through annual commemorations, we ensure that the memory of 9/11 lives on and continues to remind us of the importance of unity, strength, and compassion in the face of adversity.
