It's been 11 years since our world changed, since terrorists attacked the United States and killed nearly 3,000 innocent people.
September 11th can never be just another day. It is a day when we must remember what happened on 9-11-2001, and a day when we honor the victims.
We're proud that the American Legion here in Albany puts up its field of flags as a somber but patriotic reminder each year.
We're glad that the Marine Corps Logistics Base and other groups hold ceremonies to commemorate the anniversary.
We encourage you to take part in those events, but also remember that Patriot Day is meant as a day of service. Many of those killed in the 9-11 attacks were serving our country or their community at the time of their deaths.
They were soldiers and public servants in the Pentagon, firefighters and police officers in New York, and even brave civilians who put the lives of others above their own when they fought to take back United Airlines Flight 93 from hijackers.
Honor them by finding a way to serve your community on Patriot Day and always remember their service and sacrifice.
