“On this 20th anniversary of 9/11, we remember those first responders who charged in to burning and collapsing buildings to save others,” said John Hipes, Alpharetta Rotary 9/11 Committee Chairman and City Councilman. “And we remember those first responders in our community and thank them for keeping us safe every day.”
Gilvin added that it’s been important to reflect on 9/11 every year on the anniversary date.
“More than 100 million Americans are too young to remember what took place on 9/11,” he said. “... It is more important than ever before that we share our memories of the horrific evil and the amazing heroism that took place on that sunny September morning in 2001. We must never forget, to make sure it never happens again.”
