Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody's 2012 Sept.11 Recognition Ceremony Address

Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody's 2012 Sept.11 Recognition Ceremony Address

From the City of Wyoming Facebook page:

Eleven years ago today many, if not all of us, stood transfixed to our television sets; in or offices at home, in schools, or in churches and watched in horrified amazement as our Nation was being attacked by a handful of Islamic Extremist.

All of us can remember exactly where we were and what we doing at that moment.  And ever since then, when we see the numbers 9–11, in any configuration, we immediately think back to that horrible day.

It is important that we remember.  It is important that we never forget the lives lost and the price that was paid by a handful of dedicated public safety workers, who rushed to that terrible scene, while so many thousands ran away.
