It’s hard to think that the unforgettable attacks on our country took place nearly 20 years ago. It seems like just yesterday when all Americans, regardless of political party, race, gender, ethnicity and belief came together waving flags and banding together. As unfortunate as it was that it took such a tragedy to bring us together that feeling of unity will never be forgotten, nor will the reason behind why we came together.
Nearly 3,000 lives were lost that day, with that number continuing to grow even until today. Let us not forget that death toll represents the lives of countless first responders and emergency workers who, against natural instincts, ran toward danger to save lives. We can never forget their sacrifices and all the lives lost that day as well as the many days since.
The Greenwood Lake Fire Department will hold a remembrance ceremony at their bay on Fri., Sept. 11. The time will most likely be 7:30 p.m. and the event is open to the public. Masks are required and you will be responsible for maintaining your distance from one another.
