Today marks the anniversary of a day that will live in the memory and heart of America forever. The attacks on September 11 have been etched into the minds of our people and will never be forgotten. The sudden and tragic deaths of over 3,000 people helped forged our nation together and has made us stronger in the face of terrorism. It is because of this event that I joined the Marine Corps.
The president spoke today and reminded the American people that we are not at war with Islam; we are at war with those who have turned that religion into something it was never meant to be. I know that many people around the world joined together for a moment of silence in remembrance of those who gave their lives for their country.
