Today (Sept. 11) is Patriot Day and we remember the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001 when terror visited our shores. A lot has happened since that fateful day, but it is right to pause and remember. 9/11 was a day of tragedy, but also a day of heroism and triumph as brave first responders, military personnel and citizens answered the call in a moment of great peril.
Today, our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those whose lives were lost. Today, we aren’t a weaker nation as the terrorists intended, but a stronger nation.
And today, we remember.
