“My heart is heavy this morning as I remember the terror attacks of 9/11. Like so many Americans, the horrific images of that day are as fresh in my memory as if they happened just yesterday. Our country will never forget the nearly 3,000 victims of this terrible attack, nor the countless acts of selflessness that defined our nation’s response. As we mark this solemn anniversary, I take comfort in knowing that the values upon which our nation is based can never be taken from us.”
