“Twenty years have passed since the worst day in America’s history, and the pain and sorrow that remain are wounds that still run deep,” City of Pharr Mayor Dr. Ambrosio Hernandez said. “As we join entities around the country to honor the lives we lost on that fateful day, let us be reminded that of the healing, love, compassion, and hope that is possible as we come together as a united community. The City of Pharr is honored to join Vanguard Academy’s commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and thanks Vanguard for continuing to educate our youth about our nation’s history and provide opportunities such as this Anniversary Ceremony to honor those lives lost twenty years ago.”
