World Trade Center 9/11 I-Beam Journey to Decatur, Illinois

Today, as we reflect and remember the tragic loss and heroic response to that day seventeen years ago that is simply known as 9/11, we wanted to share with you a story from an individual who was instrumental in turning the 9/11 Memorial¬†on Decatur’s lakefront into a reality. You can read her story by clicking on the picture of the memorial below.
