THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda, hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States.  Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.  Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.


The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit.  Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified.  We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life.  We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.
