In remembrance of the lives lost on 9/11, the fear experienced by family and friends and bystanders, and the heroism and teamwork demonstrated by all rescue forces.

“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.”
—President George W. Bush at the Pentagon in 2008
