It is important to honor those who died on 9/11 and to thank those first responders–police officers, firefighters and EMS who continue to protect our communities. Every year since that tragic day in 2001, employees at Cash Express stores across Kentucky and Tennessee and throughout the nation have visited first responders in early September to make a simple yet thoughtful gesture with cakes. Small gestures can carry big messages. Cash Express is simply doing what many Americans feel on 9/11, a sense of thanks and respect for first responders. The tragic events on 9/11 unfortunately remind us that life can be too short, so we must say thanks and express gratitude when we can.
