Child Advocates San Antonio Remembers 9/11

September 11, 2001: There isn’t a catch-all phrase to express the feelings that surround this date. Fifteen years ago, our country experienced a day of unprecedented terror. While the anniversary of September 11th brings feelings of pain and suffering, it’s hard to forget the unity and solidarity that was quickly seen from coast-to-coast. This historical event brought so many people together in a time of need. Then-Senator John Kerry said it best, “Remember the hours after Sept. 11 when we came together as one…It was the worst day we have ever seen, but it brought out the best in all of us.”

In San Antonio, “Military City, USA,” the shock of 9/11 hit close to home as many of our loved ones enlisted and began stepping into uncharted territories. The feeling of patriotism surrounded the city: United States flags decorated rows of homes, and red, white, and blue colored storefronts and streetways.

When you live in a city of selflessness, everyone benefits. At CASA, we have been gifted with many longtime volunteers who have not only served our country, but our community and children as well.

We’d like to take the time to thank all of our service members, near and far, for all that you do. Your hard work and efforts are appreciated more than you know.
