Today is a day for thought, remembrance and prayer.  No words that I could say would add to the significance of that fateful day 12 years ago.  So, we remember with pictures, a timeline, and the names of those lost that day.

As we pause today to remember our brave men and women in uniform, firefighters and police officers, EMTs and paramedics, and our armed forces all across the world and at home who gave their lives, let’s not forget the regular people who rose above the chaos to help each other as well. Let’s not forget the people who are still defending our freedom and protecting our homes, locally in East Texas, across our nation, and around the world.

We remember everyone who did not come home. Below, the names of 2,977 people were killed in the World Trade Center in New York; the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and on United Airlines flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania:
