Nearly everyone who was alive and old enough to have any sort of a memory can remember where they were on September 11, 2001. Most can probably even tell you exactly where they heard the news that two planes had crashed into the twin towers in New York City. As a morning ritual in my house, I turned on the kitchen TV to watch the “Today Show” while I ate breakfast. As they replayed the crash and showed a burning building, my thirteen-year-old mind knew this was bad, but I had no idea how terrible it really was. Throughout school that day, classes were put on hold, as we watched and listened to the unfolding news. That day is imprinted in my memory, never to be forgotten.

The website will contain facts and history about the police department. It may also share stories of people’s lives since 9/11, and how some have coped with the loss of loved ones.

September 11, 2001 truly changed the way our country is run, as well as the security surrounding airports, events, and other major locations. With this website, we can now read about and gain an even greater understanding of effects is has had on each of us.
