Today is the nineteenth anniversary of Patriot Day, officially known as National Day of Service and Remembrance.  9/11/2001 was a day of tragedy.

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic group al Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.  The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, substantial long-term health consequences, and $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.  9/11 is the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history.  It is also the deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States.

We will never forget.
