terrorists launched an unprovoked, unanticipated attack on innocent people
in our country. America watched the incomprehensible in frozen, abhorred
while those trained to defend and rescue did their best. Miraculously, they
saved many. Sadly, many lost their lives selflessly. Thousands of innocent
people were massacred that day.

to a malicious coward.
those who are trained and ready to risk their lives for our safety and
protection every day.

We remember to
thank God for the compassion, vision and strength he has given America.

that we are.
