Please join members of the D&E Student Veterans of America in front of Liberal Arts Hall on Monday, September 11, at 8:46 a.m. as the American Flag is lowered to half staff in commemoration of 9/11. The first of the Twin Towers was struck at 8:46 a.m.
“May the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end to hatred, ignorance and intolerance.” These words are the final part of the mission statement of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center in New York City.
Take a moment on this day to remember and honor the thousands of innocent men, women, and children murdered by terrorists in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001. Thank our local first responders for their dedication to protecting our community. Remember the many Americans who have served and are currently serving in our nation's military—many of whom enlisted as a response to the 9/11 attacks.
Let us come together and take a day to remember the day that changed us forever.
