As the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against our nation on September 11th, 2001 approaches, the WoVeN team would like to pause and reflect on this day that changed all of our lives forever. On that day, our sense of safety and security was shaken in ways we had never before imagined. We remember the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who lost their lives, the more than 6,000 who were injured, as well as the survivors of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

We also recognize that it was the events of 9/11 that called many of the Veterans in our WoVeN community to take the momentous step of joining the military to defend our country and protect the liberty and freedom of our nation. For that, we are forever grateful. Through WoVeN, we hear your stories of your time in service, and are humbled every day by your bravery and sacrifice.

Please join the WoVeN community in reflecting, honoring, and remembering the victims of September 11, 2001, as well as those who have served our country so bravely over the past two decades. As always, to our military and our Veterans, thank you for your service.
