"Today we remember the day eleven years ago, when nearly 3,000 innocent Americans lost their life in an act of unspeakable evil. We think of the loved ones the victims left behind, the first responders who answered the call, and troops who have kept us safe since that day. We must never forget the feeling of loss and sadness for the horrific scenes we saw that day, or the pride and patriotism that brought us together in that time of national mourning. Though we are now more than a decade removed from that day, we must never forget that the cost of freedom is high and there are still many in the world who would do us harm. As a nation today is a day of remembrance. Every day should be a day of vigilance."
