For the last fifteen years we have honored those who lost their lives on this day because of horrific acts of terrorism. Today, take a moment and remember all those victims, heroes and people who fifteen years ago did not seek out heroism. Some of them were heroes in how they lived their lives and touched others. Remember those brave individuals, the first responders who rushed in to give aid and assistance. Our thoughts and prayers for you and your families. September 11th, 2001 was a long day that will never be forgotten. General George Patton once said, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” Today, we should take Gen. Patton’s words to heart and thank God for the heroes and victims of September 11th. For they have touched us all with their lives and how they lived.
