This year marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001. Locally and around the nation, this devastating event is being commemorated. We remember those who we lost and honor the brave first-responders who risked their own lives to save others. September 11 is also designating as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, and is the largest annual day of charitable service in the United States.
