Washington, D.C. ñ Eleven years ago today, America found itself under attack, and the world was changed forever.  The September 11th attacks were acts of unspeakable evil intended to tear our country apart, but those who sought to destroy us actually brought our nation together.

Today we reflect and remember the victims and their families: the firefighters, policemen, and other first responders that rushed toward the chaos so that others may live.  As we remember those who died that day, we also honor the men and women in uniform who have fought and given their lives since then in the name of keeping us safe. We will not forget.
