10 years ago, 2,752 individuals lost their lives including 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and civilians from 70 different countries. We eventually found out 19 terrorists had hijacked 4 commercial airliners, 2 of these hit the World Trade Center Towers, 1 hit The Pentagon and 1 was brought down by the passengers in Shanksville, P A. This plane was suspected to be heading for the Capitol Building or The Whitehouse.
Everybody has a story. Health professionals recommend we participate in rituals that may provide soothing comfort like getting together with friends. Music can provide comfort and company. So, we ask you to accept our invitation to a special commemorative event. The “9-11 Healing and Remembrance Concert” on this landmark anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. We will pay a musical tribute to honor the fallen heroes. We must do more than simply remember them …. we must sustain our resilience and remain united to prevent new attacks and new victims. A military color guard will present and post the colors as we raise and lower our flag.
A special welcome is extended to area organizations and individuals with a personal connection to
the 9/11 attacks including first responders from local police and fire departments as well as military veterans and their families.
