September 11th "Never Forget Memorial"

The date, September 11th has officially been renamed "Patriot Day" but for many of us, the actual date, Tuesday, September 11th 2001, will be ingrained in our minds and our hearts forever.

As the 10th anniversary of the bombing in New York City approaches, there is a mix of emotions from anxiety, uncertainty and a looming sadness about the tragedy that shook our Country.

For myself and my company, it is even more memorable as 9/11 was the first day of business for RE/MAX Professionals – to say uncertainty and fear was in the air would be an understatement.

The 10th anniversary of 9/11 it is bitter sweet as I also celebrate the 10th anniversary of RE/MAX Professionals, which is now 6 offices strong. It hardly seems possible that 10 years have come and gone - but yet it has. I do not know anyone who was not impacted by 9/11 – so my question is, how will you remember those who died?

I want to share with you that the city of Phoenix will be hosting a memorial walk and ceremony in Downtown on Sunday, September 11th to honor and celebrate those who were killed in the 2011 attack.

The "Never Forget 9/11" event will start at 7:30am at the Chase Bank Tower at 201 N. Central Ave and ends at 8:00am next to CityScape at Central Ave and Jefferson Street. The march will be led by Phoenix Fire Department and the Police Honor Guard with a series of guest speakers. To get more information, go to http://phoenix.gov/fire/index.html  

Whatever you are planning to do on Sunday, September 11th I hope you will spend it with the people you love – and please take a moment to "never forget".
