Ten years ago this Sunday, our country was devastated by the most horrific terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in our history. We lost nearly 3,000 innocent people at the hands of Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. On that day, it felt as though time had stopped. I was in a meeting with former Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Jim Sewell. He and I now speak every September 11th and remember the victims, the brave first responders, those who came to the aid of those in need, and the day we will never forget.
In the aftermath of September 11th, we did what Americans have always done to overcome adversity—we came together. We supported each other through the mourning process and helped each other heal. Our spirit can never be defeated, and our military is committed to protecting us. This May, we celebrated that Navy SEAL Team Six took down Osama bin Laden, the leader behind this violent group.
On Sunday, we will remember and pray for those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, and the members of our Armed Forces who have died defending our country. Let's also take the time to thank our military servicemen and women for what they do to protect our freedom.
