With the 13th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on America comes reflection of that horrific, tragic day in our nation’s history. The fear. The pain. The confusion. The uncertainty. The pride. The heroes. The overwhelming unity of Americans. So many people came together to help others, including emergency personnel such as firefighters, police officers, EMT’s and ambulance workers and more.
