"“As we reflect today on the tragic events that occurred seven years ago, we must honor those we lost and we must stand together as a united front, remembering that our freedom and security should not be taken for granted. Our enemies may plot evil acts against us, but no act of terror will ever crush the American spirit. America has a long and proud history of determination and success that has always prevailed. Since September 11, 2001, we have relied heavily on members of our Armed Services, the National Guard and Reserve, our nation’s first responders and law enforcement personnel. They are true professionals who are dedicated to ensuring that America is safe and secure for future generations. Julianne and I join all Georgians in remembering those who lost their lives in those senseless attacks and those who have perished while defending our freedom. We will continue to pray for their families and loved ones as well as this great country in which we live."
