September 11, 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11. We will never forget the shock and horror on that day, 20 years ago, when terrorists hijacked commercial jets and struck the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a fourth jet crashed into a Pennsylvania field after the heroic actions of passengers who learned the intended target of the plane was the U.S. Capitol.
Immediately following the terrorist attacks, our nation united in patriotism, regardless of political affiliation, vowing to never forget.
In the days, weeks and months that followed the terrorist attacks, our nation responded with unity and solidarity. American flags were proudly displayed in defiance of those that tried to intimidate and defeat us.
We will never forget those who died, the thousands of children that lost a parent, people that lost family members, the fearless first responders that lost their lives rescuing others, those that risked their own lives in order to save others,
