“Today marks 19 years since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. We will never forget the tragic events that day. In New York, we watched in disbelief as the twin towers fell. We saw first responders run towards danger to save lives. We remember the heroism of the passengers on the flights who fought back or made the unimaginable call to loved ones to say goodbye. And we learned later of the heroic New Yorkers who bravely helped others out of the towers, some risking their own lives.
The ceremonies to honor the nearly 3,000 lives lost may be different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we will never forget the families who lost loved ones, the ordinary heroes, or the first responders we have since lost to 9/11 related cancer. Our nation’s resilience then and today comes from our ability to come together in our darkest hours.”
