Eleven years ago today a tragedy struck our country. Men from foreign lands came, hijacking planes, with evil in their hearts. As the news unfolded not only did we see the terror that was on our soil; we also saw the bravery of others. We saw Americans at their best. They rescued, they died, they prevented more from dying in giving their lives, they went in willingly even though they understood they may not make it out alive. Many of them didn't.
I am proud and grateful to be an American - home of the brave.
