It will no doubt always be very difficult to look back on the events of September 11, 2001. No one of us will ever forget the tremendous losses suffered that fateful day -- of life, peace, and security.
In marking the sixth anniversary of 9/11, we honor those whose lives were taken from us and those who gave their lives so others might live. In remembering them, we also can discover renewed purpose and resolve in our primary mission of protecting the security of this great nation from terrorism.
In the words of Franklin Roosevelt, "...with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph."
With great appreciation for all that each of you contributes to that effort,
Robert S. Mueller
