14 years ago today, the attacks on the World Trade Center, The Pentagon and the crash of flight 93 occurred.

The cowardly, terrorist attacks killed thousands but, other than destroying buildings and planes, failed to do anything else. They did not scare us into submission nor did they stop us from carrying on with our lives. If anything, they galvanized us as a country and made us prouder than ever to be Americans.

They also made us even more determined to wipe out terrorism. That battle is far from over but, we'll continue until it is. Today, please take a moment to remember all who were lost on this terrible day in 2001 and also to thank those who have served, or are serving, in America's armed forces.

God Bless America!
