Today is 9/11 and it is a day a day we will never forget. 16 years ago today, almost 3,000 people lost their lives to in the biggest terrorist attack ever seen on U.S. soil.
It is officially called “Patriot Day”, and has become a national day of service and remembrance to commemorate the events of September 11th, 2001.
On this day, September 11th, 2017, The Harris Law Firm would like to take a moment to remember the tragedy of that day and to honor all those who were taken from us.
We would also like to remember the words of Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York on the day of the tragedy, who said:
“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.”
And those of then Senator John Kerry who touched us all with these words:
"Remember the hours after September 11th when we came together as one to answer the attack against our homeland. We drew strength when our firefighters ran upstairs and risked their lives so that others might live; when rescuers rushed into smoke and fire at the Pentagon; when the men and women of Flight 93 sacrificed themselves to save our nation’s Capitol; when flags were hanging from front porches all across America, and strangers became friends. It was the worst day we have ever seen, but it brought out the best in all of us."
On this day, September 11th, 2017, all of us at The Harris Law Firm will bow our heads as we remember.
