It is my hope that all of us have taken a moment to remember eight years ago where we were and how we felt. There are many that survived and many that did not survive the attacks of September 11, 2001. Every one of us can take from them a sense of love and endurance. We can appreciate the sacrifices they made and have a hope for a better future; a future of children growing to be like those brave men and women, a future full of freedom and liberty, and most importantly a future of hope, gratitude and perseverance.
We owe many thanks to those that have given their lives in service. May we always remember them and honor them.
