On September 11th 2001, our country came together after we suffered an unimaginable loss that changed our world as we knew it — forever. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 attacks including; New York City police officers, firefighters, and paramedics who were all struggling to complete evacuations of the buildings and save the trapped office workers.1 Each anniversary of the attacks we remember all of the victims of this devastating event. Our 9/11 Rolling Memorial truck’s intent is to make sure we — NEVER FORGET.
Many of us remember where we were and what we were doing the moment we heard that a plane had crashed into one of the twin towers. Not soon later we learned about additional strikes on the remaining tower, the Pentagon, and near Shanksville, PA, avoiding the terrorists’ intended target, the Capital building. The hijackings on September 11, 2001 will forever be etched into the minds of Americans and this September, we ask everyone to remember the men and women who lost their lives that day.
A crowd gathered at East Stroudsburg University of PA on Sunday, September 11th, to watch as 9/11 disabled first responder, James Hagner, strapped on a harness and pulled Road Scholar Transport’s Rolling Memorial awareness truck, weighing in at approximately 36,000 lbs, to help raise money for the FealGood Foundation.
