We stand united as a country on a misty Tuesday morning to commemorate the many lives lost seventeen years ago. We also remember all those who have died from 9/11 with related illnesses from their heroic work at ground zero and those who still suffer today. It’s a somber day across America as we all remember and pay tribute to such a horrific terrorist attack. The commemorations are now all too familiar across companies, schools and households on this day. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks on this day, when international terrorism hit home. Some of you may remember exactly where you were, who you were with or how you felt. Some of you may not have even been born yet. And some were directly effected by this vicious attack and it will have forever changed your life. No matter your relationship to this day, we all come together to remember a tragedy… but we look forward with hope.
