If you’re over the age of 25 you most likely remember exactly where you were, what you were doing and who you were with on the fateful morning of Sept. 11, 2001.
Fifteen years have passed, but the date always makes us stop and pause. We reflect. We might give a few extra hugs to our loved ones, thankful to have them near. And if you’re like me, you wonder if there’s more you can do. The answer is yes, there is.
The 2,996 Sept. 11 victims and more than 6,000 survivors represented a cross-section of ages, races and genders and launched a military campaign that is still going on today.
Many nonprofits in Charlotte provide services to active and veteran military members and their families. Consider donating your time or purchasing items from our Give Shop to help these organizations.
