Remembrance and Resolve
Nine years ago, on a beautiful late summer morning, 19 terrorists ended 3,000 lives.
Those who died were not just Americans, but men, women and even children from all corners of the globe. All were murdered in a fanatic ideology’s declaration of war on our country.
Today, and every day, we remember and mourn those lost.
But remembering the victims is not enough.
We must never let the passage of time obscure the fact that we remain at war with that ideology. And we must never waiver in our resolve to win this war; our support for the brave Americans fighting it; and our determination to live as free men and women, and to preserve the blessings of liberty for posterity.
