On Sunday, September 11, 2011 we mark the day of the horrific attacks on the World Trade Center, United Flight 93 and the Pentagon. On that day, America was robbed of some three thousand precious and productive men and woman. Those were our grandfathers and grandmothers, moms and dads, spouses and children. Those were our brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins. Those were our friends. All were heroic models of the substance that define who we are as a people. Those unsuspecting men and women were representative of the intelligence, sweat, work ethic, passion, pride and energy that has made and continues to make America stand out as the guiding light and strength through the decades.
The murderers who facilitated and executed the attacks on our people and our country did so out of an envy and hatred of our most basic core principles and beliefs in life and liberty, something for which we should never take for granted.
And so we remember those cherished lives lost on that fateful day ten years ago. We salute you, miss you and love you. Most of all we will forever remember your sacrifice and count you among those who have fought and died to keep America the land of the free and the home of the brave.
