9/11 Remembrance Statement From Andrew Raia

September 5, 2012

That September 11 has changed the face of this nation and the world is no longer in doubt. Exactly how it has changed us is another matter. Has it strengthened our resolve, or shattered our confidence? On this day of remembrance, 11 years removed from that dark and fateful hour, seeing the faces of so many brave New Yorkers young and old, I already know the answer.

To the victims of the terrorist attacks: You will never be forgotten. To our brave first responders and military veterans: Thank you for your legacy of service. And to our enemies: Our united commitment to this great nation is unshaken.
