It has been 11 years since the horrific events of September 11, 2001. We remember the unwavering perseverance of the men and women who on this tragic day defined our country's greatness and determination to survive even the most trying of times. That day there were service members, firefighters, police, and neighbors not running away from danger, but running directly into it. We remember those we lost on that fateful day and thank those who have continued their efforts to keep us safe in the years following the attack.
Let us come together on this year's anniversary of 9/11 and display our American flags with pride. Join me in reflecting on the ways our nation and the world came together on that fateful day, and take the time to thank a first responder, member of our armed forces, or veteran for his or her service. If I can ever be of assistance on federal issues, please feel free to contact my Central Ohio District Office at 614-771-4968.
