This site has been made to remember the victims and the families of the September 11th, 2001 Tragedy.
Remembering today, 9/11/07
Today, we commemorate the sixth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. People across the country and around the world will mark this day with a moment of silence or by listening to the thousands of victims' names read aloud at the memorial ceremony in New York City. Others will give back to their communities in the same spirit of compassion that we witnessed in the aftermath of the attacks. Many of us will hold our loved ones a little closer as we remember each innocent life that was taken from us on September 11, 2001.
In the end, there is no right way to remember that day. It's only right that we do remember.
The passing of days, months, and years does not lessen the obligation to remember the tragedy of 9/11 and the way that we individually and collectively came together to support one another after the attacks. It reminds us of the binding connection that we share with one another. It reminds us to fulfill our obligation to preserve the story of September 11th for generations to come.
On this anniversary, our thoughts and prayers are with the many thousands of people who remember September 11th as the day that their loved ones did not come home to them. We remember the fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, sisters and brothers -- whose memories we shall never forget.

In sorrow we mourn for those lost
In gratitude we embrace those around us
In sympathy we reach out to those who grieve.
We are strong and will pull together to help one another.

IN LOVING MEMORY
We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake we know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still.
There will always to be a heartache, and often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory of the days when you were here.
If tears would make a staircase, and heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.
Our family chain is broken now, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
