Sixteen years ago, our country witnessed a tragedy of unspeakable proportions. Many of us felt immense despair as more than 3,000 lives were lost on September 11, 2001 at the hands of terrorists. We also witnessed what heroism looks like, as so many people bravely rushed in to aid those in need.
That ability to come together in difficult times, to provide assistance to our fellow neighbors, and to find strength in unity is an indelible part of the American spirit.
On this anniversary of September 11, I invite you to pause during your day to remember the families who lost loved ones on that fateful day, and to reflect on our ability to find hope in the midst of devastation.
