Today marks the 14th anniversary of one of the most emotional days in our country’s history. We join the rest of the country to honor the nearly 3,000 lives that were tragically lost on September 11, 2001.

The Department of Transportation shared the following story showcasing how the transportation community joined together that day to save lives. We will always be grateful for the selfless actions of our first responders and other individuals and will never forget their sacrifice and bravery.

On this anniversary of September 11, 2001, we honor those in the transportation community whose actions saved lives, provided a measure of solace and security, and helped inspire what has become a National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Fourteen years ago, with a national airspace emergency of unknown scale unfolding, the men and women of America’s air traffic control system took extraordinary measures to safely shutdown our skies. And as thousands sought refuge from the chaos of Lower Manhattan –where roads, bridges, and tunnels were closed– U.S. Merchant Mariners rushed to New York Harbor to evacuate them by water.

We hope the two video reflections here –in addition to the enduring stories of heroic first responders and the brave passengers of Flight 93– will serve as a reminder that when we do our part to help strangers as well as neighbors, our nation will not falter.
