United in our Observance of 9/11
On the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Americans will be united in remembering that fateful day.
My heart goes out to all of you in our National Grid community who lost family and friends on that date fifteen years ago. And the same goes for all of you who watched that day unfold firsthand, who worked as first responders, and who volunteered tirelessly to help ease the pain inflicted on Shanksville, PA; Washington, D.C.; and, especially, New York City.
As a nation, we’ve remained resilient. One of the many lessons learned from 9/11 was that resilience results from, among other things, preparation. We need to continue to be prepared for all calamities, natural and man-made.
One small, yet important way we can honor the thousands of people affected on 9/11 is to create or update our own family emergency plans. Guidelines and tips are available at https://www.ready.gov.
Most importantly, reach out and talk to each other on 9/11. United in our observance, we will stay strong.
