Monday is the day when many Americans pause to honor the victims who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. A series of deadly hijackings killed more than 3,000 people in New York City, The Pentagon and Pennsylvania. Here is a list of events in the mid-Michigan area:

Today is September 11.  It’s been 12 years since the horrible events in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania that saw nearly 3,000 people die at the hands of terrorists.  As Americans, we still feel unsettling emotions at the mere mention of the term “Nine-Eleven.”  

We remember with pride, however, the selfless bravery of  our first responders who rushed into harm’s way to save lives.  While we still hold police and firefighters in high regard, those professions have weathered their share of hardships in the years since.
