Lest We Ever Forget
— World Trade Center Towers, The Pentagon, Shanksville PA —
After a time, rubble was removed, smoke and minds cleared, yet memory remains. The People of Wayne County decided to erect a memorial to stand as a permanent reminder, not of the suffering our country had endured. But to honor those among us who serve and save us in times like that day. We pay tribute to our firefighters, police, emergency medical personnel and armed services. All of whom continue to dedicate themselves to serving, saving and protecting the rest of us.
Steel from "Ground Zero' in NYC, American Stone, Land, Labor and Love completed this Monument.
Dedicated by the Grateful People of Wayne County, Pennsylvania.
This 11th Day in the Month of September 2005
Let us remember those who perished
Those who sacrificed
and Those who continue to serve
Erected 2005 by the People of Wayne
