The Georgia Department of Public Health joins our fellow Georgians and nation as we remember September 11, 2001. Yesterday marked the official day of  the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and we start our day in public health and around the state with a steadfast commitment to our mission. We remember the acts of terror. We paused on Sunday in public health for moments of silence at the designated times that our nation was changed ten years ago. We remember approximately 3,000 people who lost their lives, including 19 hijackers, and more than 6,000 people who were injured. Families were changed forever. Neighborhoods were changed. You were changed. Let us stand tall and proud together.
