As the 18th anniversary of September 11, 2001 approaches, our hearts are with the families and friends of the almost 3,000 men, women and children who were taken from us on that tragic day.
It’s important that we keep them in our memories. And so this week, we thought we’d highlight a few of the 9/11 remembrance events in Texas. Here’s a list of some of those events (click the links for more details):
