Sixteen years ago on September 11, 2001, the United States was brutally attacked. Four planes were hijacked by terrorists.  Two of the planes were sent crashing into the Twin Towers in New York, New York; the third plane into the Pentagon in Washington D.C.; and the fourth into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  By the end of the attacks, the death toll had mounted to nearly 3,000 souls, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes and 343 and 72 police and firemen respectively.

The damage done during these attacks has had a lasting effect on our country, and tomorrow we will recall the full impact of those events that unfolded a sleepy Tuesday in September. We will remember to pay tribute to those civilians’ whose lives were taken from us too soon; we will remember to honor those police and fire who fought to protect us; and we will remember as a way to remain united as a nation.

Please work hard today to honor those who wish they could be working out today
