We Remember 9-11
Published 11 Sep, 2012
Eleven years ago today, Americans endured the greatest attack on our liberties and freedom since Pearl Harbor. Today, family and friends of those who died at the hands of terrorists on Sept., 11, 2001 will gather in New York, Pennsylvania and near the Pentagon in memoriam of the tragedies that occurred.
As Americans reflect and come together, TWU would like to recognize our brothers and sisters on American Airlines Flights 11 and 77 and United Airlines Flights 175 and 93, the 3,000 victims, the first responders who courageously sacrificed their own lives, and those who dedicated themselves to the around-the-clock vigil assisting with the search and rescue efforts.
TWU transit workers proudly stepped up to search the underground subway taverns and to supply and coordinate first responders and we want to express our pride and gratitude for those who still suffer from the physical and emotional effects from that day.
