Never forget.

While it might seem cliche given that almost every social media post today as had this phrase, it is important that the events of 9-11-2001 not be forgotten. Thousands of people lost their lives that day in a senseless act of violence.

17 years have passed since that morning.

May we never forget.

 

In Christ,

Rev. Evan
