Thank you for helping to get the word out Lorraine. I would like to ask that the people who come out to attend be very careful of the commuter traffic that will be at Patriot Station at the same time. It is a tight plaza and we need to make safety a priority. I'd also like to ask the commuters to please be extra alert for pedestrians and bystanders throughout the day. Oak Lawn is very fortunate to have the largest quantity of World Trade Center Steel that we know of in Illinois, and it is likely that more people will be in the area at any given time on this anniversary of this terrible tragedy. I hope everyone can come out and pause to reflect tomorrow at the Memorial, even if you are unable to attend the service in the early morning. It represents the heartfelt gratitude that Oak Lawn residents and businesses have for the sacrifices of our First Responders and also honors the resilience of the American Spirit.
