9–11 Anniversary Tugs on
Our Hearts 12 Years Later

No matter how far we live from New York City or Washington, D.C., we felt close to all those impacted on 9-11. If you're like me, you remember exactly where you were, what you were doing and how your heart ached watching the TV footage.

As horrible as it was that day and during its aftermath, we cannot forget what happened. Please join me this week in honoring the 2,996 lives lost as well as the hundreds of heroes who saved others.

9-11 was the deadliest incident for firefighters in the U.S. history. Our own Mesquite Fire Department secured a piece of 9-11 history--a steel beam from the World Trade Center warped by the explosion. Money is being raised to build a memorial to show this striking 9-11 representation to our community for years to come.
