Sept. 11, 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.
Americans across the nation were in shock and faced unimaginable fear. The devastation, destruction and loss that occurred two decades ago would go on to leave a lasting mark on the nation.
Now observed as Patriot Day, Sept. 11 serves as a yearly reminder to pay tribute to the victims, survivors, and first responders who were impacted on 9/11. Senator Sue Rezin also says the anniversary serves as an opportunity to remember and appreciate the service men and women who dedicate their lives in service to their country, fighting for freedom and in defense of the American people.
