“Even sixteen years after the terrorist attacks on September 11th, the stories of heroism and faith will not be forgotten. Out of one of the darkest days in our country’s history came the spirit of American resolve and resilience. These ruthless attacks meant to cripple us as a nation and shake our foundation only united us and made us stronger. Today, the world is more dangerous than any time in my lifetime. The terrorist attacks of September 11th are stern reminders that we must remain vigilant here at home by taking every precaution to protect the safety of all Americans. Today, we honor the over 3,000 victims and their families, as well as the thousands of brave men and women who continue fighting every day to defend our nation."
