By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // September 11, 2018
2,977 people were killed in the terrorist attack
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – While each of us goes about the normal hustle and bustle of our lives, we as a nation can never forget the heroic efforts of our incredible first responders and citizens who were killed by terrorists on September 11, 2001.
It’s hard to believe that it was 17 years ago today, that the world stood still, as we as a nation watched in horror the twin towers being attacked, the Pentagon being crashed into, and United Flight 93 crashing, after the brave heroes on board attacked the terrorists who had taken over the plane.
On that day, 2,977 people were killed in the terrorist attack of which 412 were Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters who were taken from us while they raced toward danger to save the lives of those who were in harm’s way.
Brave men and women who gave their lives trying to save the lives of others.
As a nation we can never forget our heroes, our first responders who died trying to save others they had never met before, and our Military who protect our great nation every day as they fight terrorism across the globe!
So today, I ask you to take a moment to remember those we lost on September 11th, 2001 and to forever keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
