Today marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11th Terrorists attacks on America, which claimed the lives of 2,977 people. Today, take time to reflect on the events, those lost, and everyone effected in the aftermath. “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirt of unity that followed September 11th.” Please join us in an extra moment of silence after the pledge to honor the memory of souls lost on that day in history.
