Nation, county needs time to remember

Our Views

 Most people old enough to remember the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, will vividly recall what they were doing that morning.

They will remember their reactions to the lost of so many lives.

They will remember the fear that the country felt for days, weeks, months and even years to follow.

The tragic events of that day will literally change the world in which we live forever.

Thanks to the vision of people like Paulita Keith-Miller, Bullitt Countians will have an opportunity to come together this Sunday to remember the sacrifices made by so many on that day.

Bullitt Countians are invited to come together to not only remember the past but to also thank those heroes who are protecting us today.

A remembrance will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday next to the Bullitt County Courthouse. There will be a number of special speakers, including a mother and daughter duo who are from New York and will present a unique perspective on life after 9-11.

Then a special silent procession of emergency workers will lead the crowd to the Shepherdsville City Park.

There will be a variety of activities held and the public will have a chance to meet and to thank many of the emergency workers, firefighters and law enforcement personnel who will be at the park.

We hope that a big turnout appears on Sunday to show the support of the local heroes as well as all those who lost their lives not only on Sept. 11 but since that day in their pursuit to protect the freedoms of this country.

Thanks to Paulita Keith Miller for your work and thanks in advance to all those who plan to attend. It should be a very special occasion.
