Ten years ago, we suffered the worst terrorist attack in America's history. Nearly 3,000 innocent men, women, and children – including hundreds of first responders and citizens of more than 90 countries and of many faiths and backgrounds – lost their lives that day. As we approach the 10th anniversary, we remember those we lost and we look how far we have come in securing our nation.
