Today marks the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on our country. Not only did the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center fall, but the Pentagon was hit and many people were lost as Flight 93 crashed in a Pennsylvania field. Today, there is a memorial to remember these victims of terror.
There are also, these many years later, attempts still being made to bring justice to those who died or were seriously injured during the attacks. Just this week, news came that there has been confirmation and federal recognition that those trying to help (first responders) and civilian survivors in New York City may now have the real risk of developing cancer as a result of their exposure to the scene.
Let us hope that justice is served and closure can be found for everyone impacted by this tragedy.
Let us remember to honor the memory of 9/11 today.
