Remembering September 11, 2001
On the morning of September 11, 2001 our nation was shaken to the core and our lives were forever changed. Our hearts broke as a national tragedy unfolded in front of our eyes.
On that day, we resolved to come together as a nation and heal as one.
It's been 18 years and the memories of 9/11 are still fresh in all of our minds.
As we remember the innocent lives lost that day, let us also remember the bravery of so many men and women who stood strong in the face of evil. From the early hours of that Tuesday morning through the months and years proceeding it, multitudes of courageous individuals heeded the calls for justice and unity. Our nation grew stronger each day, relying on the resilience of those who serve and the kindness of our neighbors.
Today, we live in an even more connected and dangerous world...but we still derive immense strength from our shared experiences since that fateful day.
I hope you will join me today in paying our respects to the victims, the families, and the heroes of September 11.
