NEVER FORGET... The world forever changed on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, at 8:46 a.m., when the first plane struck the north tower at the World Trade Center.

On Saturday, in memory of the 20th anniversary, the Brazil Fire Department hoisted a large American Flag above US 40 in front of Brazil City Hall. Many residents were talking about the quiet tribute, as many people stopped their cars along the road to privately reflect for a moment on the tragic loss of 2,986 victims and more than 6,000 others who were wounded and the many first responders who ran into harm's way to help.

  • Thank you BFD for doing this, a very solemn, but impressive tribute.
