Remembering September 11, 2001

Today we are pausing to remember the events of September 11, 2001.  We remember those who lost their lives and whose families still grieve their loss.  We remember the police officers, firefighters and first responders who were on the scene in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.  Finally, we remember the members of our armed forces and government who devote their lives to serving our country.  Because of them and many others throughout history, we are proud to have the word "American" as part of our name.
