Remembering September 11, 2001

This morning I attended our city's remembrance for the victims and heroes of the terrorist attack on our country seven years ago.

On that day, we saw the bravery and selflessness of police officers, fire fighters, and other first responders who rushed into buildings to save others. Ordinary people helped each other with a spirit that defies those who believe ours is a dissipated age.

Today, let us recommit to honoring them by striving to emulate that spirit of selflessness and compassion for our neighbors every day
