9/11 Never Forget Project (2013)

9/11 Never Forget Project (2013)

Thank you to everyone who helped with the memorial and to everyone who stopped today to reflect and remember those lost. We are proud to continue this tradition and honor our fallen.

This year, we were truly touched to see that someone added a note of remembrance in honor of a FDNY firefighter who lost his life on 9/11 while helping rescue others.

May we never forget.
