On this 11 September, it is a grim reminder of this world’s realities. We have enemies. People who will risk life and limb to hurt us. So many other countries [for instance Ireland, England, Malaysia and so many others] know who their enemies are. They have more present danger.
But don’t think that our enemies aren’t trying. Our enemies are not sleeping. They are planning. They will try again. They are going to test us.
It has meant a lot of inconvenience. But I urge everyone to remain vigilant. For yourself. For your family. For your neighbors. Our freedom is worth it.
We will fight for that.
To all those who lost someone eleven years ago, my deepest and continued condolences.
To those who have lost someone is service of this country, my deepest and continued condolences.
To everyone, celebrate your freedom.
