Lexington NC USA Remembers

September 11, 2016 marked the 15th Anniversary of the senseless attack of Americans on American soil.  Bucolic Lexington, NC remembers her national heroes and her local heroes in a fitting ceremony on a beautiful September day.

“We remember and we will never forget the nearly 3,000 beautiful lives taken from us so cruelly—including 184 men, women and children here, the youngest just three years-old. We honor the courage of those who put themselves in harm’s way to save people they never knew. We come together in prayer, and in gratitude for the strength that has fortified us across these 15 years. And we renew the love and faith that binds us together as one American family.”  –President Obama, September 11, 2016

“A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.”  — President George W. Bush

God bless Lexington, NC and the USA!
