Remembering 9/11

Photo and excerpt source:
Today is the day we all look back and remember exactly where we were when we heard about that first plane. Today is the day we remember how we all came together united as a nation. And today is the day we remember the lives that were lost on that horrible day, and the lives lost in the years to follow in our quest to rid the world of such evil.

If you haven't already, next time you're in Columbia, take a moment to visit the First Responders Remembrance Memorial, located directly outside of the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

The "First Responders Memorial honors all the South Carolina first responders (police officers, firefighters, EMS and military members) who have lost their lives since September 11, 2001. Engraved with the names of these individuals on the two 25-foot granite pillars, the memorial also demonstrates the unity of the United States after 9/11 through two crossed steel beams recovered from the World Trade Center in New York City."
