Our patriotism and resilience as Americans shine through any darkness that may knock on our door. To this day we still work together to rebuild and recover mental and physical damage from the attacks; and WHEREAS, with eighteen years passed that this terrible tragedy occurred, our country and world have changed in so many ways.
