Today, we remember the lives that were lost and pray for the loved ones who suffer their absence every day. We have not forgotten you, and we never will. We honor the heroes who ran toward danger, risking their lives to help others. And, we recognize the sacrifices our service members, first responders, and intelligence professionals make every day to keep our country safe.”
