I took the opportunity to proudly participate again
this morning with fellow representatives from the Knights, Lions, VFW,
American Legion and the Georgetown Fire Department along Hwy 17 North
(Church St.) for our annual recognition/memorial for those 2,997 victims
who lost their lives from the 19 terrorists who overtook the 4 flights back
on September 11, 2001. It further recognizes the 6000 others who were
injured and the many other First Responders and ordinary citizens who were
able to save so many lives. If you take time to Google 9/11, there is a
myriad of very interesting information about those flights and all we now
know about that Infamous Day. This local event along Hwy. 17 in Georgetown
has been sponsored for the last several years by the Lions Club, with the
support of many other organizations, on September 11th each year since the
attack. The Honor Guard from our Georgetown- Pawleys Island Patriotic Order
of the Knights, the Philip Grant Assembly of the 4th Degree, has
participated each year since its inception.
Timelines: 8:46 a.m.: Flight 511 crashed into the
North Tower in New York City;
9:03 am.: Flight 175 crashed into
the South Tower in New York City;
9:37 a.m.: Flight 93 crashed into
the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.;
10:03 a.m.: Flight 77 is crashed into
a field in Pennsylvania by passengers who overtook the terrorists and
sacrificed their lives to stop this flight that was destined to crash into
the White House!
LEAST WE FORGET!!!
Please take some time TODAY to thank God for the many
blessings we still are able to enjoy in this FREE United States and to PRAY
for continued blessings and healings to the individuals and families who
were most directly affected by this act of terror.
