22 years ago today, our United States of America faced one of the most gut-wrenching moments in our history — a terrorist attack on our country’s soil in New York City.
Within an hour of the Twin Towers collapsing, a small town in rural Pennsylvania, Shanksville, became a household name around the globe.
I am forever grateful and will always remember the first responders and citizen heroes who responded that day from our local communities and from across Pennsylvania.
As I sit and watch the news replaying the videos and calls from that day, it still feels just as devastating. That day changed our nation, but we are a resilient nation and even on America’s toughest days, we are still the greatest nation in the world.
