A relative of mine said this, I can't say it better, so I stole it
"On this day, remember all the Americans who lost their lives 9 years ago, all the fireman and police who lost their lives trying to save them, and all the other heroes who spent their days at ground zero looking for survivors, and then clearing out the wreckage. Remember all the men and women in the armed forces who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom. Lest we never forget, Freedom isn't free."
Thank you Nicci
