As The Bell Tolls
Remembering Those Who Lost Their Lives on 9/11
As the bell tolls ringing throughout the land, the world and history touching hearts still today let us remember those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001.
We must remember those who lost their lives, their families and loved ones.

All the deaths were civilians except 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. Some immediate deaths were not added to the list until years later.
There was a total of 411 Emergency workers who died.
NY City Fire Dept., FD NY lost 340 firefighters, a Chaplain and 2 Paramedics.

2 people were added to the toll after dying from health condition from exposure to dust in collapse.
After NY, New Jersey lost the most state citizens, with the City of Hoboken sustaining the most deaths.
More than 90 Countries lost citizens in the attacks.
Many more have died since due to injuries and illnesses connected with 9/11
Weeks later after the attacks the death toll was estimated to be over 6,000 more than twice the number of deaths eventually confirmed.
Health effects extended to students, office workers of Lower Manhattan and nearby China Town approximately 18,000 have developed illnesses.
We must remember what terrorism brings to a people and a nation. Evil has no face, it comes to steal, kill and destroy. We must not forget how precious life is and we must cherish life and our freedom in our nation as a people, for we are truly weaved in the fiber of life itself, one life touches another weaved in time with God's love. We must trust in God.
