On Monday, America marked 16 years since the terror attacks that murdered over 3,000 people. While we all remember the fallen and their families, we also marked the occasion to remember the courage an bravery of our first responder as well as American citizens who answered the call of heroism that day. At a commemoration, President Trump said, “Our eyes were opened to the depths of the evil we face but in that hour of darkness we also came together with renewed purpose. Our differences never looked so small. Our common bonds never felt so strong.” Americans today remain steadfast in our commitment to liberty, to human dignity, and to one another. And we will never forget September 11th, 2001.

We encourage Americans to support disaster relief efforts in any way they can.
