Never forget

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the most devastating terroristic attack on our country.

For more than a decade, it is simply referred to as 9/11.

Two hijacked jet airliners slammed into the twin World Trade Center Towers, eventually crumbling them to the ground. Another hit the Pentagon and the third crashed in a field as the passengers attempted to retake the plane.

We hope you will take a moment today to remember those who were killed. And as important, to remember the incredible bravery of the first responders who died doing their jobs - saving others.

At 9 a.m. today, a ceremony will be held on the West Court Square by public safety officials to honor the fallen.

May we never forget. And may God bless America.
