Most of the world remembers what they were doing and where they were on that fateful day 10 years ago. As 9/11 approaches, thousands upon thousands will be remembering friends, families and victims that for no fault of their own, fell foul of the events that day.
There were 2996 casualties from the horrific event. 343 fire fighters and 60 police officers died trying to help those trapped in the twin towers and on the ground.

St Pius X is a Catholic School in Atlanta, and to comemorate 9/11, a number of their high school wrestling team will be participating in the Dunwoody-Manhattan Twenty-Six Story Memorial Stair Climb.
As part of the wrestling teams remit for the new season, they wanted to get involved in charitible and meanigful events as a team. David Sabino, the teams head wrestling coach, looked to this year to be "Memorable and successful. Not just in competitions but in our faith as a catholic school. Commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11 together as a team is our way of honoring the memory of the victims and the heroic service of the first responders.”
St Pius X offers wrestling as part of its winter athletics programme. They have a junior varsity team and a middle school wrestling team. Wrestling is a great team sport and a fantastic disciplin for young men.
The comemorative event, which takes place on Saturday was organized by Pat Lindstrom, a firefighter from Dekalb County. All proceeds from the climb will go to the Burn Foundation.
Our most warm condolances go out to all those people affected by the events of 9/11. My Wrestling Room will be remembering along with thousands of people all over the world.
God Bless America.
