Let us also thank the countless first responders and volunteers from all over the country who helped our city in its time of need. And let us also renew our commitment to honor those who lost their lives and to help those who put everything on the line to help by providing them with ongoing assistance and care.

“In the immediate aftermath of September 11, we came together as a nation in the spirit of unity and solidarity. In this era of so much division, we cannot afford to forget that it is in our core values where we find our strength, our unity, and our greatness.”
