Dear friends and neighbors,
Today, we observe the 19th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, which claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent people in New York City, Washington DC, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. While the victims were from all over the country and around the globe, many lived here in Connecticut. They left behind spouses and partners, parents, children, siblings, close relatives, friends, coworkers, and neighbors, and their untimely loss left our communities in despair. However, in true American fashion, our anger and sorrow would soon become a source of resolve.
As we reflect on those we lost, let’s remember the first responders who rushed into danger to save others,
how their unparalleled heroism and the events of that morning brought our nation together, and how, since then, we have worked and fought side-by-side for a brighter and more secure future for our children.
Let’s continue to honor the legacy of those first responders and all the victims of that fateful morning by always serving others, by looking out for our family, friends, and neighbors, and by doing our part to make the world a better place for all.
To the families, know that we are always with you, that we continue to mourn with you, and that we will never forget those who did not come home to you.
With warmest regards to you and your family,
World Turns Upside Down
