- from September 11
The events of September 11, 2001, took place in a matter of hours, but they left behind deep and enduring scars on individuals and the country as a whole.
People whose lives were directly affected by the attacks may have their own personal ways of remembering that day. Communities were quick to create impromptu memorials, while the nation planned and built monumental places of remembrance. These are all ways people have honored victims of the attacks and pledged to remember what happened that day as a way of never letting it happen again.
