Remember the heroes of 09/11.

Another anniversary of 09/11/2001 is upon us and there has been much debate and contention this year. The most important thing is that we don’t let the controversy overshadow the sacrifices made nine years ago. Brave police officers, firefighters, medics and citizen heroes lost their lives that day doing what they felt was their duty. It now becomes our duty to keep their memory alive and not dulled by time. Please take a moment of reflection tomorrow and think about all of those people who left their homes and families that morning expecting an ordinary day but did not return. Then remember those who make that journey everyday into an uncertain world.

In the words of journalist Peggy Noonan:

“They weren't there, they WENT there
They didn't run from the fire, they ran INTO the fire
They didn't run down the staircase, they ran UP the staircase
They didn't lose their lives, they GAVE them.”
