Eight Septembers have come and gone. Nearly 3,000 days have passed; almost one for each of those taken from us, but no turning of the season can diminish the pain and the loss of that day. No passage of time and no dark skies can ever dull the meaning of this moment. So on this solemn day, at this sacred hour, once more we pause, once more we pray, as a nation and as a people.
