Wednesday is Sept. 11. It’s a day most Americans know well. On Sept 11, 2001, terrorists flew jetliners into the World Trade Center towers, knocking them down and killing almost 3,000 innocent people.

Other terrorists crashed a plane full of passengers into the Pentagon and another into a Pennsylvania field when passengers tried to retake control of the aircraft. First responders attempting to save people in the twin towers died when the buildings collapsed on them.

Thousands more American men and women died in Iraq and Afghanistan attempting to rid the world of terrorists. Each Sept. 11 we remember all these lives lost.

It only takes a minute or to reflect on our collective loss and pay tribute to those who died needlessly and those who lost their lives while in uniform. They are not forgotten.
