We share a common bond with the men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice 17 years ago today. When tragedy happens and the bell goes off we don’t back down, we don’t cower, we face the challenge head on and we perform our duty to keep safe our communities. Many a brave that morning went to work as if it were a normal shift and many never returned home. The courage and brotherhood displayed that day and the days, weeks, and months thereafter to overcome evil will be engrained in our beings forever. To our brothers and sisters we lost that day and to the thousands that suffer from the horrible illnesses as a result of 9/11 we honor you and WE WILL NEVER FORGET. To our members that served that day and the many weeks to follow, keep close in your hearts The Brotherhood. Let this day serve as a reminder to cherish the ones you love and to not take anything for granted.
