Remembering Those Who Perished On 09-11-01

Eleven years ago, our Nation was attacked, and our way of life was changed forever. Terrorists killed thousands of innocent victims in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Today, we remember all of those who perished on that terrible day. I hope that you and your family will spend some time together, thinking about those who lost their lives and the families they left behind.
