VIDEO: We'll Always Remember: A Reflection on 9/11

Just ten years ago, Americans experienced one of the most horrific attacks in the Western world.  In the midst of our nation's pressing economic troubles and tumultuous political landscape, let me encourage you to take a moment this weekend to reflect on the foundational American principles of freedom and human dignity. Not long ago, these principles were under assault. 
On the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we will all remember the great heroism that came out of this horrible tragedy—the brave first responders who gave their lives to save others, the passengers on United Flight 93 whose extraordinary actions prevented the killing of even more of our citizens, the servicemen and women who stepped up to protect our country in the wars that ensued, and the millions of Americans who put their differences aside and stood united as one.
Earlier today, I spoke on the House Floor and wanted to share the video with you.  You can watch my speech here on youtube, or read the text on my website (
