Today is the day to remember the many innocent Americans that unexpectedly lost their lives fifteen years ago. Today is the day that we share in the grief and pain of so many families that have struggled with the loss of their precious family members. Today is the day that we all honor the amazingly brave fire fighters, police officers, & first responders that immediately leaped into action, without knowing the unprecedented danger that lay ahead. Today is September 11, 2016. Today, not only do we remember the many lives that were lost on September 11, 2001, today we also admire the strength, resilience, and triumph of New York & New Yorkers. We hope that you take a moment today to remember those we have lost, while appreciating how we have responded to the tragic events of 9/11 with courage and dignity which is a sign of the tremendous personal strength that New Yorkers and Americans holds within each of us.
