Islamist terrorists mercilessly attacked us nineteen years ago today.
They killed 2,977 innocent people, including over 412 Emergency Workers (Firefighters, Police, and Emergency Medical Technicians) who died trying to save the lives of their fellow Americans.
This morning, we pause to remember them.
We also pause to honor the courageous Americans who put themselves in harm’s way to take the fight to our enemies abroad – so you and I don’t have to live with the threat of another major coordinated terror attack.
For 19 years, these brave men and women have kept our enemies at bay and on the defense.
But, that comes at a price.
- Nearly 7,000 American Service Members have lost their lives in the “Global War on Terror”.
- Tens of thousands of our Troops are still forward deployed across the Middle East and Africa.
- Millions of Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics, EMTs, and other First Responders continue to risk their lives daily here at home.
Protecting our Nation must be our top priority if we intend to continue defending our inalienable rights and the freedom we enjoy here in America.
So, today as we remember those we lost on 9/11, 2001, give thanks for the men and women
who serve and protect us at home and abroad every day.
