We all remember where we were on September 11th, 2001. Whether it was just finishing up a morning meeting at work or being frantically picked up from school by a loved one like I was, we will never forget that day or the events that followed.
Freedom comes at a price and it is a hefty one. But the quest for a more free society…a more just society…is the backbone principle of this nation!
Just as I was on September 11th, 2001, I am forever proud to be an America. We are not a perfect nation, but we do not aim to be. Our aim is to provide hope and optimism, opportunity and aspiration, to as many people as possible.
For those who have fought and continue to fight, domestically or abroad, to protect these aims, I pray for you and thank you for your service. Our nation is forever indebted to you, your comrades, and your families.
We are One Nation, today and forever more, and we will Never Forget!
