Today marks the 20th anniversary of the devastating terror attacks that took 2,977 lives in New York City, Washington, DC and outside of Shanksville, PA. We commemorate those who we lost and give thanks to the brave first responders who put their lives on the line. We hold dear their struggles will not have been in vain, and maintain a sense of hope for the future. We will never forget.

Two decades later, while we remember the absolute horror of the day and the days following, the spirit of community and coming together as one stands out. And two decades later, there is no better time than now to rekindle that spirit once again, when our nation so badly needs it. We urge you to take a moment today to consider what we stand for as a nation and how we can work together to make the world a better place for all.
