Wednesday is the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a plane that crashed in an empty field in rural Pennsylvania.
Several community events are being held this week to remind us of that day so that we never forget the attacks, the people who lost their lives and the heroic actions and sacrifices of the men and women who responded to the attacks on our country.
Here are some Sept. 11 events that are being held this week:
