“Today we honor and recognize the 2,977 innocent Americans who lost their lives at the hands of evil in the horrific terrorist attacks on 9/11. We remember the survivors, the first responders, and the families and communities that were broken. We remember the heroes who answered the call to serve their fellow Americans, and we remember those who lost their lives fighting for our freedoms ever since.
“Despite the tragedy that occurred, Americans everywhere rallied together and we persevered. We are a nation that believes in defending our country and our ideals, especially the fundamental belief of freedom. Our adversaries want us to live in fear, but we will never back down or stop fighting for what we believe in. May today be a day of remembrance and reflection as we go forward with the resilient spirit that has been instilled within us all. God Bless the United States of America.”
