Visiting the 9-11 Memorial also reminded me of the resilience of the American spirit. There is a rebirth happening now in downtown New York City. Families have moved back into the area, new businesses has taken root. Freedom Tower grows higher each day, now ascending above the NY skyline. Life flourishes around Ground Zero sending the strongest message off all to the terrorists who tried to defeat our spirit, you’ve lost.
Today is the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Let’s give pause to remember those who sacrificed their lives that day; the 2,977 victims, including 246 on four planes and the 343 brave FDNY firefighters who ran into danger to help others escape and our service men and women who continue to protect our freedom abroad today.
Thank you. We will never forget,
