There is a much of concern going on in the commonwealth and country today. But there is time enough to chronicle it. Today, we reflect on the horrific day 11 years ago when nearly 3,000 people were murdered in a heinous act of barbarity. Not only did people die, but others were affected: Children grew up without mothers or fathers; brothers, sisters, wives, husbands, uncles, aunts, grandparents; colleagues, confidants, friends, heroes. All lost prematurely and changing the course of countless more lives; thousands more who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country so that this will never happen again. Yet, by never forgetting will this never happen again.

We will never forget. We will never stop praying for America.
