This Is An Incredibly Sad Day

I will devote my day to remembering the almost 3,000 innocents who were lost to us on September 11, 2001, our dear fellow citizens who have died or been permanently disabled since then because of that tragic day, and the countless thousands of brave men and women who have died or been injured in the defense of freedom in the years following.

I will also think about the countless thousands of children, spouses, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends of all those lost who will never hear their voices, hold their hands, share a thought, or shed tears together.

Though I may forgive the hatred that brought us to these shores, I will never, never, forget these heinous acts.
