“On the morning of September 11, 2001, our nation witnessed an unfathomable act of terror that killed 3,000 precious souls, shattered countless lives and stole the innocence and sense of security of a generation. Nineteen years later, we still remember where we were when the Twin Towers fell, when the Pentagon was struck and when Flight 93 was brought down in a field in Pennsylvania. Yet, due to the extraordinary heroism of our firefighters, police officers and first responders who rushed into danger, September 11 does not belong to fear, but rather to courage, patriotism and compassion."
