QUOTE OF THE WEEK
On the morning of September 11, 2001, 16 years ago this past Monday, our country was attacked by the Islamic terrorist group known as al-Qaeda. 2,996 people were killed and over 6,000 were injured. It is certainly a day that Americans will never forget.
“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” –President George W. Bush
