I wanted to write something pithy and funny today. I have a couple of topics brewing that are begging to be blog posts. But today is not the day for that.
Today is a solemn day. A day of remembrance and mourning.
Twenty-one years ago today, on September 11, 2001, nineteen terrorists hijacked four commercial airplanes. In a coordinated attack, the hijackers intentionally flew two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, and a third into the Pentagon. When passengers on the fourth flight learned of the other hijackings, they launched a counterattack forcing the hijacker pilot to crash the plane into a field in Pennsylvania.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed on that day, the single largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil.
The League City Fire Department holds an annual 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb to honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001. Below are a few photos of Eximo members turning out to show their support.
So I’ll save the funny for another time. Today is for the almost 3,000 lives lost that day.
We vow to never forget.
