On the 13th anniversary of 9/11, our thoughts are once again with all those who lost loved ones on that tragic Tuesday morning. And we at the North American Review would like to pay tribute to those lost lives. We want to remember the names, the faces. We want to remember the bravery and sacrifices of the first responders. We want to remember those who, though in danger themselves, took the time to help others. We want to honor them all and celebrate the sense of unity that emerged from the rubble.
So lower your flag, and take a moment of silence for the nearly 3,000 lives that ended that fateful day.
