9/11 We Will Never Forget

September 11th is a day we will always remember. We’ll remember loved ones, friends, and co-workers lost. We’ll remember where we were and what we were doing the moment we heard the news or witnessed the incident first hand. It is a day that will forever be ingrained in our memories.

About 9/11 Day

In 2002, 9/11 Day was created by David Paine and Jay Winuk. “David and Jay had worked together in New York City, long before the 9/11 attacks. Jay’s younger brother Glenn, a partner at the prominent national law firm Holland & Knight LLP, was one of the nearly 3,000 people killed on 9/11. For almost 20 years Glenn also was a volunteer firefighter and EMT, specially trained and certified in building collapse rescue operations, working out of the Jericho Volunteer Fire Department on Long Island. When the World Trade Center was attacked, Glenn helped to evacuate his law offices, then raced into the WTC’s South Tower to participate in the rescue efforts. Glenn died in the line of duty along with many others when that building collapsed. His partial remains were found in March 2002, a borrowed first response medical kit by his side. In 2002 they formed the nonprofit group One Day’s Pay in honor of Glenn and all those who perished.

9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11 every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. [They] created this observance soon after 9/11 to provide a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks, and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Today millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way.”  Get more info and join the 9/11 Day Movement today by visiting www.911day.org
