"Today is a day of prayer as we remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. As we mourn the tragic loss of life seven years ago today, our thoughts and prayers go out to the families still grieving. We also recall the heroic acts of patriotism on that day and those who died in service to their fellow man. The memory of those individuals will always hold a special place in the hearts of all Americans."
"Now more than ever, our country stands together as we continue to fight the global war on terror and bring those responsible for these cowardly acts to justice. Our troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, and across the globe continue to defend our freedoms and liberties, keeping us safe from those who wish to compromise them."
