Forever in our hearts. Lest we forget. Let us remember them. As long as we live. They will live to. For they are apart of us. As we remember them. God bless America. And let us say amen.

People may choose to forget the painful experience of 9/11, but we should always remember those who perished, as well as the families and friends affected by the horrible acts of cowardice that day. Thank you, Palatine, for helping us remember the ones who will be forever in our hearts and minds.
