WE WILL NEVER FORGET
This is the day that we remember the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, DC and onboard Flight 93, which took place on September 11, 2001.
Governor Ducey has ordered flags be lowered to half-staff today in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 innocent men and women who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
You can watch his statement here:
“That day is a sobering reminder that our democracy and our way of life must be protected and fought for. It is this sense of patriotism and commitment to one another that we must ensure every generation understands. Every child needs to learn of the tragedy and sacrifice of September 11. We must instill in our children the pride of being an American, to never stop believing that freedom will triumph over terror.
“Today, we pray for every person who lost a loved one on 9/11. We pray for the families of those who have fallen in the name of liberty. And we pray for our service members who continue to protect and defend our freedom. We recognize their selflessness as they put on a uniform when their nation needed them most.
“Time has helped us heal, but we will never forget.”
