The U.S. remains the world’s great hope

This anniversary marks one of the toughest days in our nation’s history; a day when nearly 3,000 moms and dads, sons and daughters were senselessly taken from us in an act of war by radicals who sought to destroy the American dream.

They did not succeed. We saw a brilliant ray of hope on one of our country’s darkest days when we rose up together as Americans, united in the face of terror, and resolved to rebuild, proudly carrying-on the torch of freedom.

Our brave men and women in uniform continue the fight to bring the masterminds of 9/11 to justice and keep our people safe from future attacks. Because of our troops’ heroism and sacrifice, we have not seen another attack in this country since. We owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude.

This Sept. 11, we remember those who were lost, and those who have given their life since then in defense of our country. We honor their memory by putting aside our differences and celebrating our common bond as Americans, for the United States remains the world’s great hope – a vanguard of freedom and tolerance for all.

– Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Colo.
