Remembering the men and women that lost their lives 10 years ago.
Remembering the children that lost their mothers and fathers 10 years ago.
Remembering the mothers and fathers who lost their children 10 years ago.
Remembering the brothers and sisters that lost their siblings 10 years ago.
Too many lives were lost and 10 years later I WILL NOT FORGET!!
What kind of person runs into burning buildings when everyone else is running out?  A hero.  Everyday these heros risk their lives to save others.  I married a hero.  I married someone who runs into burning buildings and comes home with black stuff coming out of his nose.  I married someone that loves his job and wants to protect and help other people.   Today we celebrated the lives lost of the innocent people that were affected by 9-11 and for the firefighters and police doing their job to save them.  We celebrated the military for fighting for our freedom and keeping us safe.
 These boys did a remembrance hike this morning climbing 1.5 miles up 1500 feet of elevation (totaling 3 miles) on a  hike symbolizing the steps and distance in the towers that the firefighters climbed.
 About 200 people from our community showed up for the event.

 The fire department put on a ceremony for the town with beautiful speeches, music, and performers.  There were military, police and fire personnel with all their apparatus on display.
