Never Forget: Remembering the Events of 9/11

Never Forget Patriot Day

Monday, Sept. 11 marks the 22nd anniversary of largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives and thousands more were injured after hijackers flew planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Virginia (near Washington, D.C.) and a field in Pennsylvania.

The day has since been memorialized as Patriot Day. While those lost lives are mourned, the nation also celebrates the bravery of the service members and first responders who remain on the front lines.

Mayor Scott Cain has proclaimed it to be 9/11 Remembrance Day in the City of Cleburne. In addition to remembering the lives lost and the heroes who stepped up, he urged citizens to remember the unity that fellow Americans after tragedy struck.

“We also pause to remember the days that followed—when we put aside our petty differences, and we celebrated being one and united,” said Mayor Cain. “Let’s focus on what makes us Americans.”

A steel beam from the World Trade Center is usually displayed at Yellow Jacket Stadium on 9/11. This year, the City will participate in a larger remembrance ceremony in Arlington, which will include the steel beam.

The beam will be housed back in Cleburne after the conclusion of the ceremony.
