Thirteen years ago, 3,000 innocent Americans were senselessly killed in a terrorist attack on our nation. Among them, first responders who bravely ran into the burning Twin Towers, passengers of United 93 who took on their hijackers and saved countless lives on the ground, and heroes at the Pentagon and in New York who sought to save others--their coworkers, friends and people they had never met.

We offer up prayers that God in His infinite love grant them peace on this sad day and all days.
