  • Important to not forget the reason we celebrate 9/11

     It happened on Sept. 11, 2001. It was a day in which terrorist attacks changed this country forever.

    While the years have passed, the memories have not. And never should they fade from our memories.

    Each year, Bullitt Countians remember this event in a variety of ways. This year will be no different.

    North Bullitt High JROTC will again host a special remembrance on Friday. On Thursday, the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce will honor all first responders.

    And it will surely be part of the political fodder we will hear.

    The neat thing is - the creation of the position can be debated on either side. The person selected cannot.
