9/11 Patriot Day - 14 Year Remembrance

 Around the world, we watched the unthinkable attacks on our nation. We can recall how our heroes – firefighters, police officers, paramedics, construction workers and volunteers – worked in the Ground Zero rubble, evacuating and assisting the injured.

On this solemn day of remembrance, we, the Everest Business Funding family, commemorate and mourn the two thousand, seven hundred and fifty three lives senselessly lost at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. We recognize this day and we share the grief that still lingers for those who were part of the horrific situation.

We would like to take this moment to also remember how Americans came together in ways that had not been seen before. They supported, cared for, and reached out to those who needed physical and emotional help. Passengers in a plane banded together to save the lives of many people, while sacrificing their own lives, and hundreds of people contacted distant family members to reconnect.

Sometimes the way is hard, but if we work together, we will make it down the stairs. Don’t stop until the work is over; sometimes being a hero is just doing your job. The dust cloud won’t last forever. Trust your team, keep going and look for the way out. It will come. Then […] shake off the dust and move on. Forward.
