It’s been 15 years since September 11, a day that remains engrained in our memories. Fifteen years since the towers fell. Fifteen years since heroes rushed into the fire to help. Fifteen years since, in the wake of tragedy, Americans banded together to support one another. To honor the fallen and first responders, many Long Island towns will host remembrance services and ceremonies.
