September 11, 2019 James Benson, Chief Communications Officer A Pictorial Remembrance 9/11 September 11, 2019 James Benson, Chief Communications Officer September 11, 2001. It’s hard to believe 18 years have passed since that fateful day. All of us who were old enough to recognize the impact of that day, remember.Today we share a pictorial remembrance with photo credit to AP, CBSNews, Flicker. We remember exactly where we were when we heard the news and watched the replays as the second aircraft flew into the South Tower of the World Trade Center . We remember watching as the smoke billowed from the Pentagon. We remember the incredible sacrifice of the heroic passengers who took Flight 93 down rather than allow it to reach its intended target in Washington, DC. We remember the hundreds of selfless first responders who lost their lives and countless more that risked their own health and safety to find and save our fellow citizens. We remember the thousands of victims and the thousands more family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who suddenly and tragically experienced significant losses in their lives. We need to remember, too, all those still suffering from life-altering physical and mental injuries and illnesses to this day. We need to remember, if you see something – say something. We need to remember how we were galvanized as a nation that day and celebrated our shared gifts of freedom and unity – gifts we still share today. 9/11 is a day for remembrance.
