Lest We Forget

Who doesn’t remember where they were on Tuesday, September 11, 2001? Like December 7, 1941, it is “a date which will live in infamy”. So today, thirteen years after the fateful events of that horrible day, we pause to remember. Remember the innocents whose lives were lost, remember the families and loved ones they left behind, remember the terrible losses of that day and all the days since…lest we forget.
