Today Tom & I attended the 9/11 memorial ceremony at the Bangor waterfront. This moving event was organized by the JROTC at Bangor High School & directed by Lt. Col. Darryl Lyon. It was a fitting reminder of the losses, courage, and heroism of that terrible day 20 years ago.

In what seemed like a moment, September 11, 2001, was transformed from a day like any other into a day unlike any other. The loss we relive this day reminds us of the values that we must protect. The heroism reminds us of the unconquerable spirit of the American people.

The exceptional integrity, devotion to duty, and courage Gary demonstrated in Mogadishu nearly three decades ago were forged in his hometown of Lincoln. May God bless his family, our veterans, and those who serve today.

The Americans who were killed today selflessly and courageously gave their lives to help desperate, innocent people, and I offer my deepest condolences to their families.

Today’s catastrophic attack against American servicemembers and innocent Afghans was a despicable act of terrorism. We owe a tremendous debt to the brave servicemembers who are engaged in this evacuation effort, and we grieve this senseless loss of life.

President Biden has made two excellent choices for critical Asian ambassadorships, nominating Rahm Emanuel to represent the United States in Japan and Nicholas Burns in China. Both have the skills, intellect, and experience to represent American interests well.
