As we look back and remember the horrific events of September 11, 2001, and the almost 3000 lives lost on American soil, we stop to honor and memorialize those who were lost on that fateful morning 13 years ago. And although it was a day of unbelievable sadness, we also remember the many acts of heroism from first responders and citizens during one of the worst days in American history. We are reminded of a proud country made even stronger by the determination, strength, sacrifice and unity of its citizens and warriors alike.
Recently, some of our Forged team had the chance to visit the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City. It was an honor to witness the beauty that has been created out of the ashes of the World Trade Center. To describe the emotions, the scale, the lives lost -- is difficult to transcribe with words. Instead, we look at the images and remember.
Part of remembering on this National Day of Service and Remembrance is to remain ever vigilant to honor and protect the memories of those who have fallen in the 13 years since September 11.
Keep this in mind throughout September.
