Today marks an anniversary of a day we will never forget. It brings back memories of both sadness and hope. Fear and strength. Let us remember the victims and their families today, and the sacrifices of the men and women who worked so hard to rescue them. Thanks to the talented photographers who captured the horror and the American spirit on film, we will never forget.
My oldest daughter Lisa wrote a very moving poem I'd like to share with you.
We’ve lost brothers, sisters, cousins.
We’re a nation of survivors
So we stand here as a family.
The skyline before the terrorist attack.
The second of two blasts to the World Trade Center.
The endless search for victims.
Police and firefighters tirelessly risk their lives for days.
No American life is untouched.
We became a nation united in prayer.
The terrorists couldn't destroy
our American spirit. It lives on. In every heart.
Young and old. Far and near.
They didn't understand...
God Bless America!
