September 11, 2001 our great country was attacked by those who hate the freedom and democracy we all stand for. Many innocent individuals lost their lives during this tragic event. However, there were also fire and police servicemen who lost their lives by choosing to put themselves in harm way to save and protect as many of the innocent as possible.
Although the attack was in New York City, it affected every American across the nation. It caused us to realize how little we can take for granted. We believe that if the event had taken place in Monticello, Arkansas our brave fire and police servicemen would have responded the same.
Revival Center will host the 2nd Annual Servicemen Appreciation day to honor the sacrifice of our local and county law enforcement and firefighters, who place their lives in harm way every time they put on their uniforms. This is just a small gesture to let them know we will not take their sacrifice for granted. We also wanted to thank their families for allowing them to serve. No servicemen serve alone but their families serve with them.
