September 11, 2001: 9-11 Memorial
Today marks the 11th anniversary of that fateful day. I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news in the morning, and the devastating scenes of the planes flying into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania will forever be etched into my mind. We will always remember and empathize with the thousands of people whose lives were changed forever on 9/11, and send our thoughts and prayers to their families and friends. We have shown remarkable resolve during the tough times we’ve faced, from the 9/11 terror attacks and subsequent two wars in the Middle East, to political turmoil and an economic recession at home. We have worked together to encourage freedom and get our country back on the right trick.
In the aftermath of 9/11, we stood with the victims and their families, and we also stood with each other. Today should be a day of remembering and grieving, but it should be a day of reflection; a day to look back at the past 11 years and how, despite how much adversity we’ve faced, we have been able to get back on track and truly be the UNITED States of America. This is why our country is so strong.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and friends today. We will never forget, and we will never struggle to end extremism and stand together to fight oppression.
