The memory of 9/11 is indelibly etched into the soul of our country, a reminder of the vulnerability and the resilience that defines us as a people.
As we reflect upon that fateful day, let us also acknowledge our journey as a nation to rebuild and recover. It has been a road fraught with challenges but has also witnessed moments of unity, empathy, and a deepened appreciation for the beauty of our nation's diversity.
