This weekend brings back a flood of memories from a day that changed America forever.  One day in history that we will never forget.  The day that all Americans stood in front of their television with emotions of shock, fear, sadness, anger, and uncertainty radiating through their bodies.  This weekend, the Firefighters in the St. Louis metro area will pay tribute to all the victims of 9-11.
