Proud to be part of 9/11 memorial dedication

I’m a proud American. I’m proud to have been part of the Summit County 9/11 Memorial Dedication at the Frisco High Country Fire Training Center on Sept. 11 and to have been a part of a team of great American volunteers that came together and saw a need higher than themselves, by bringing a piece of the World Trade Center to Summit County forever. I saw all fire district and first responders, the ones that protect you at night and answer the call when you need help and who run toward danger there, I saw military veterans and active duty. Who have answered the call after the attack on America there and I saw great local volunteers, that planned this memorial event for 2-3 weeks and endless hours there who have stood up proud of their community and that has shown the world that we are America! Thank you.

Tom Torres, Silverthorne
