GWC Remembers 9/11/2001

While you’re getting ready for another busy day today, remember to take a brief moment out and reflect on what is important. We never know when something unexpected may happen, such as the world-changing tragedy that struck America on September 11, 2001. Here at GWC, we will be sure to remember those that were directly effected by their twist of fate that morning.

The number of fatalities due to the World Trade Center bombing will probably never be known, but is estimated at around 3,000. That is about three times more than the yearly average of motor vehicle accident deaths in the state of Illinois…all taken in one day.

The events that took place on this day in history will never be forgotten, nor will the loved ones we have lost. In a moment, your life can change. Some things, no matter how careful we are, simply cant be avoided. Enjoy your day, appreciate your life, and never forget.
