Dear fellow republicans
This is the 15th anniversary of the most devastating attack on American soil. On this day, September 11, 2001, our great nation was attacked by Islamic terrorists. These terrorists incorrectly felt that our great nation was the root cause of all of their religious, social, and economic woes. Our nation suffered a great loss with a series of four coordinated attacks that killed 2996 people and injured over 6000 people.
This was a cowardly act of terrorism. The first two attacks were with planes that were intentionally crashed into the World Trade Towers in New York. The residual impact was that the buildings collapsed and killed an additional 343 firefighters and 72 police officers who were trying to rescue people trapped in the towers.
The third attack followed with a plane hitting the Pentagon causing additional loss of American lives. The final attempted attack was by United Airlines Flight 93 bound for Washington, DC. Brave Americans aboard that flight were able to overtake the hijackers. Their brave actions resulted in the plane crashing in a Pennsylvania field. Many American lives were saved as a result of these brave Americans..
Americans from all races, genders, and political parties came together, as proud Americans, and worked together to rebuild from this devastation.
Let us always remember this tragedy and never forget that we are all Americans and together as one people we can, and we will, stand united.
