The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred.

Nothing says “NEVER FORGET” like a good ol’ sale to commemorate the tragedy. BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE CLASSY!

These are from the timeline of Jon Hendren (@Fart), who has been doing the good work of retweeting 9/11 sales from businesses all day so we can all shake our heads collectively.
