HUNTSVILLE, AL-  September 11th, 2001 is a day that changed every American’s perspective, heart and life.

“9/11 changed all our lives forever, nothing has been the same, nothing will ever be the same,” said U.S. Space & Rocket Center Spokesman Tim Hall.

That’s why the U.S. Space and Rocket Center hosts the Honor Walk, to recognize those who gave everything on 9/11 and beyond.

“The first responders, they were the ones who went into the burning buildings who helped saved lives, average citizens obviously jumped in, helped make a difference.  Then the military, they were called to step up in a way as never before,” said Hall.

On the Honor Walk, you’ll move through a labyrinth, taking twists and turns.

“As a reminder that people took twists and turns in their lives to make our country safer, to safe lives, to make a difference,” said Hall.

Fourteen years later, it’s still important to pay homage to our American heroes.
