TIPS Chair Randy Aliment Remembers Those Lost on September 11th
Ten years ago we woke up, readied ourselves for work, and went about our business on a beautiful Tuesday morning. Little did we know that a new kind of war, a 21st century war, would soon begin when foreign terrorists turned four U.S. commercial aircraft into weapons of mass murder and destruction. We knew then, and it has proven true, that things would never again be quite the same. But Americans have demonstrated that we are, as a people and a nation, both strong and resilient. And although we dearly miss, and will never forget, our friends and family who were lost on that fateful September day, we must carry on with our lives in the spirit of their memory. Please take a moment to reflect upon their smiles and laughter, and the good times we shared.
