September 11 will always be remembered for the horrific loss of American lives and the assault on our sense of national security. But, it will also be remembered as an event which brought out the best in so many people. Like a Phoenix, from the burning embers of the World Trade Center rose a new sense of unification and national pride. Nowhere was that more evident than with the actions of those brave First Responders, who risked their very lives to search for survivors; reclaim order and safety and give hope to a shaken nation. Our eternal thanks go to them and all who continue to fight for our safety and freedom. Our prayers continue to go to those who were lost on that tragic day; and to their loved ones.
