“On Patriot Day, we remember the Americans killed in the largest terrorist attacks ever committed on American soil, and the brave law enforcement and firefighters who responded.  The stories of their sacrifices inspired Americans in the days following September 11, 2001, and their many acts of heroism helped us come together as a country and combat the evil of terrorism.  These stories continue to inspire us today as we wage war against Islamic extremism at home and abroad.  We will never forget.”
