9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit coming to the 61st WV Black Walnut Festival
On September 11, 2001, the terrorist attacks in New York City, New York; Washington, D.C.; and Shanksville, Pennsylvania forever altered our society. From these horrific acts of selfish violence came unbelievable acts of selfless courage by our great nation's law enforcement officers, firefighters, and civilians. We will always remember the paralyzing events of that day, but not just because of the devastating visuals broadcasted around the world on news outlets, but also due to the bravery and camaraderie of those who risked (and those who lost) their lives fighting to save our friends, neighbors, and family members trapped around the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
On October 9-10, 2015, the 61st Annual West Virginia Black Walnut Festival will celebrate the men and women who risked and sacrificed their lives in service to their fellow citizens, as well as every person who was affected by the events that occurred on that fateful day.
