Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. — a time of reflection and remembrance for many.
Our company honors the many that died, the many that responded to help and our 5 team members that died in the attacks, with short posts stories, quotes and pictures. The grief is still with us.
Now is a time for remembering and honoring. Your company can do the same. This is a time to support those that are here working, those that are remembering and to honor those we lost.
As someone who lived in New York, this date is always very emotional for me. Every year I am renewed in my love for my country and our men and women defending our freedoms. I am so thankful to work for a company that takes the time to remember those lives that were lost. I will never forget where I was and how I felt on that painful day 15 years ago. It is forever etched in my mind, heart and soul. – Quote from a Team Member on our company memorial
I worked with all five who died and spoke to Antoinette, in particular, on a regular basis, and occasionally come across emails with her name on them, I will never forget that day and the conversations I had with the survivors of the operations team after the event. It still gives me chills. – another Team Member remembers
For each company, the planning of a recognition has a different focus. Be sensitive to your team and showcase your company values. Many of us are walking 5 miles on Sunday September 11, part of a tribute to our veterans, honoring those that serve and those that have been injured through the amazing NO BARRIERS group. Most of us will participate by walking and then posting our participation on the virtual walk, several cities have No Barriers walks planned as well.
There are many opportunities to acknowledge our country, our spirit, and our bravery.
