September 11th, 2016 | Patriot Day | VFR All American Car Show
Many gave their lives that morning in New York. While thousands ran away, hundreds ran towards to help people that they didn’t know get
to safety. Without regard for their own safety, they successfully saved the lives of countless hundreds as the towers were evacuated. The towers crumbled while the world watched, and thousands of lives were lost in seconds. The first-responders continued towards the rubble, again without regard to their own safety. In the horror of what had just transpired, they continued to save lives, pulled one at a time from the thousands of tons of rubble. Long days, and long nights rolled together into what seemed to be a never ending search for traces of life. The world stood still.
The first-responders, that were in the buildings assisting the injured and handicapped escape the carnage of the plane impacts, had no escape for themselves when the buildings collapsed.
On September 11th, 2016, 15 years after the terrorist attacks in New York, we celebrate Patriot Day, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance of the 2,977 people killed. With a focus on those first-responders, that everyday, put their lives on the line when they dawn their uniforms. Selflessly, they protect and serve as Police officers, firefighters, and paramedics, all waiting on standby to spring into action on a moments notice to come to the rescue of anyone, anywhere.
The days following the attacks, a wave of patriotism and national pride and determination grew from the ashes of destruction, and spread across the nation from New York to LA. In those months following those attacks, we were all one; we were all American.
