September 11, 2001, is a day forever etched in most of our memories. Some of us lost friends and loved ones, others were among the courageous first responders that were on site for days, weeks and months. More among us were members of our military that were deployed to defend our country in response to this atrocious attack. It shook us all to our core and we responded as an indivisible nation.
In the aftermath of September 11, the citizens of our country came together to support and strengthen each other. Love for our country united us and in that we found love and compassion for each other.
Today, as we remember and honor those that were lost in the September 11 attacks and the ensuing war, we thank our first responders and veterans, especially those members of our Easterseals family. Let us also bring forward the love and compassion we have for each other as we move forward as a strong, united Easterseals.
