We at Advocate Capital take a moment of silence today to reflect on the 20th anniversary of 9/11’s attacks and to remember the nearly 3000 lives lost during the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93's crash in Somerset County, Pennsylvania...We also pause to honor the bravery of our first responders who responded to the incident; many of whom risked their own lives to save others.
As we and the nation mourn the loss of this tragic event, our hearts go out to the survivors, families, and heroes still affected today.
There are many victims and surviving heroes of this event who are still struggling today, as they inhaled cancerous toxins from burning rubbish or had been injured.
