9/11 Remembrance Event
Yesterday, our Brand Ambassador, Jennifer Pinto was in NYC for several 9/11 remembrance events. She captured some of these photos that we wanted to share with you.
For all Americans, for all time, the phrase “nine-eleven” will evoke a special meaning, a memory of a moment in our history when the world as we knew it changed forever. It is fitting, then, that every year on September 11th Americans join together to honor the memory of the 2,977 lives lost that day and the 5,449 service members killed in action in the wars following. And we should observe a moment of silence as a tribute to those lives cut short, and as a symbol of the empty places left behind in the hearts of those still living.
Let us pray for the families who carry on their legacies, and let us honor the unmatched bravery of our Nation’s first responders, the FDNY, and our NYPD on the front lines today.
We also commend the men & women in our military who, in the days and years following the attack, answered the call to serve our country and continue to risk their lives in defense of the matchless blessings of freedom as we stand here united. The United States is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
