The 9/11 attack was a traumatic event in our nation’s history and we are still dealing the consequences of that terrible day. As terrible as it was, it brought our country together and gave us many inspiring stories of courage, compassion, heroism and survival in the face of monstrous evil. The story of 9/11 is the story of each and every one of us who experienced that day and were changed by it. Those are stories that must be shared with future generations and the Remembering 9/11 Commemorative Edition of The Union Daily Times make that sharing possible and will ensure that those who come after us will remember us and how we reacted to the day that changed America.
