On September 11, 2001, the United States endured one of the most unconscionable tragedies in our country's history. The cowardly terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and onboard United Flight 93 cut short the lives of 2,977 innocent people. These attacks tore a hole in the heart of our Nation, and the pain of this tragedy still remains. Each year on this somber date, we remember the horror and bravery shown that day, just as we remember how we came together, united in grief and in purpose. Each year, we renew our solemn vow to never forget what happened on September 11, 2001, or those who lost their lives.

“On Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, we honor every life that was taken too soon. We honor the first responders—firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency workers, and service members—who answered the call of duty, and the brave civilians who rushed into action to save lives that day. Their courage embodies the American spirit and resilience, and their heroism continues to inspire new generations of Americans.”

In remembrance of September 11th, we placed our "Flags Across Kingwood" flags in the yards of homeowners, businesses, and village entrances in Kingwood, Atascocita, and Oakhurst.  This is an act of patriotism that our members truly embrace as it reminds all of us that our freedom is precious.
