Today, let’s pause for a moment and honor the nearly 3,000 men and women who lost their lives 12 years ago.

Remember the firefighters who rushed to World Trade Center. Remember the service members who stood strong at the Pentagon. Remember the brave voices that shouted “Let’s Roll” on Flight 93.

Remember them all.

In the midst of immense darkness, the American spirit shone brightly – sending this unforgettable message of hope around the world:

We’ll never forget the ultimate sacrifice these heroes made. Today let’s honor their memory of keeping America the land of the free and home of the brave.

God Bless America.
