We Will Always Remember September 11, 2001
Fifteen years ago tomorrow (9/11/01) Muslim terrorists in an act of outright war hijacked four US commercial airliners and in an act of religious extremism and Islamic Jihad. They flew two of the flights into the World Trade Center twin towers in New York City and a third into the Pentagon.
On the fourth hijacked flight which was scheduled to crash into the White House or the Capitol, the passengers overwhelmed the hijackers and crashed United flight #93 in to a field in central Pennsylvania.This was just one of literally thousands acts of heroism carried out that day. Unfortunately, these unprovoked acts of Muslim terror committed on Americans on American soil that day 15 years ago cost close to 3,000 innocent Americans their lives. Each of them was a hero and a martyr..
Please fly your American Flag at 1/2 staff* tomorrow in memory of everyone who lost their life that horrendous day and to honor their families, their loved ones, their friends and the thousands of survivors who were perpetually scarred by the events of 9/11/01.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
*Note – The US Flag Code specifies that when the American Flag can not be flown at 1/2 staff (for example when it is attached to a house or is displayed on a podium stand) it should be displayed on designated days with a black banner or black ribbon as shown below.

It is therefore not only their right, but their duty, to declare them.”
