Today, I had the opportunity to join other Members of Congress and reflect on the tragedy that befell our country on September 11, 2001. With heavy hearts, we prayed for the nation and for those who lost loved ones.
That day, eleven years ago, once again proved that our nation is full of heroes. Those heroes stormed the cockpit of Flight 93 and saved the lives of many. Those heroes were the countless first responders who intently searched the rubble at Ground Zero to rescue those who had fallen. America is a great nation because it is made up of great people. I am forever thankful and proud to be an American.
