Just a quick note to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of September 11th - the beginning of the War on Terror.
We lost 3,000 civilians on the first day of the war, and 376 soldiers in the fighting since.
We cannot afford to avert our eyes from evil. We cannot give up one inch to fear. We cannot stop this fight until the fight is won.
Thanks to every person in service who risks their life and honor to those who have died. Those who fight for us know that life is less important than liberty. They know peace is a goal that must sometimes be defended with blood. And they know that their actions today secure a better life for an entire generation tomorrow.
Take some time with your family and loved ones today. If you see a cop, or firefighter, or soldier, thank them with a kind word.
And never forget.
