Thursday is Patriots Day.
Take time to remember the horrible events of Sept. 11, 2001, when more than 3,000 people lost their lives in the terroristic attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in a field in Shanksville, Pa.
Honor the police, fire fighters and emergency workers who are first to respond to crime scenes, accidents and work to protect us every day.
And don't forget the more than 4,000 service men and women who have given their lives for our freedom since that awful day.
Don't ever forget.
