As today marks the 16th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, we remember those who lost their lives and honor those still fighting for our freedom. We grieve, empathize, and reflect on the day’s events that forever changed our country. From the pain of this unspeakable tragedy, American’s came together to build a stronger, more resilient community.
Since then, we continue to come together in times of adversity. Whether it be Hurricane Katrina, Super Storm Sandy or most recently, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the people of this country always can be counted on to reach out and help those in need.
In response to Hurricane Harvey’s destruction, Brinker Capital employees generously donated to the Houston Food Bank, which provided 36,960 meals to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Additionally, Brinker Capital will be taking new donations to help those who have been displaced by Hurricane Irma in the coming days.
On behalf of the Brinker Capital family, our thoughts are with the everyday heroes who have helped make our nation stronger today.
Noreen D. Beaman, Chief Executive Officer, Brinker Capital
Today is a day of remembrance and reflection; a day where the gamut of emotions will be beyond words. We will grieve, empathize, reminisce, feel proud, and so much more as we take stock of the events that happened 13 years ago. Memories of the September 11, 2001 attacks are as vivid as ever today.
But despite the pain and anger spawned out of immense and unspeakable tragedy came a sense of community and resiliency. We have seen our economy hit historic lows and have had to weather the storm of plummeting markets. We have faced, and continue to face, terrorist threats and acts against our nation and fellow Americans. But we have shown great resolve rooted in the shared experience of September 11th. We are closer now, as individuals, families, and communities and are prepared to face whatever comes our way.
So on behalf of our family here at Brinker Capital, our thoughts are with all of those who lost their lives, their families, first responders, policemen and women, firefighters, doctors, nurses, and the everyday heroes who have helped make our nation stronger today.
