As We RememberSeptember 11, 2012
On the eleventh anniversary of the tragic events of 9-11, millions of Americans from across the country will reflect on the horrible experiences of that day that forever changed our lives in America.
As we commemorate the victims and honor their memories, let us not forget that their sacrifice has made us a better and stronger America. The terrorists thought they could tear down the American spirit and resilience with senseless acts of violence. They thought they could stop us from defending the freedoms that make America great.
They were wrong.
In the days after the attack, Americans from every walk of life came together to help bring back some sense of order to the United States and the world. On this day, let us take pride knowing that our nation has not lost its will to stand up against those who threaten our way of life.
It is important that we also remember our firefighters, police officers and emergency personnel, and the great services they make to keep us safe and out of harms way.
Today should also be a time to keep our men and women in the armed services, as well as their families, in our thoughts and prayers, as they continue to give of themselves in order to keep our country free
God Bless America,
Chairman-At-Large, Prince William County Board of Supervisors
