Today is the 13th anniversary of September 11, 2001 and the attacks on our country that left nearly 3,000 dead. Take time today to reflect on that tragic day and to pray. Reflect on the men and women who lost their lives and many others who gave their lives, in the act of rescuing others. We pray for the families of those that lost loved ones in this brutal attack, for the brave first responders, and we pray for our troops and their families as they continue to fight to defend our God-given freedoms.
In Texas, we are committed to ensuring that our students never forget the atrocities committed on 9/11 and the American heroes that responded. Our social study standards adopted by the Texas State Board of Education have rightfully added coverage of September 11, 2001 and people like Todd Beamer, one of the heroes of Flight 93 who said “Let’s Roll!”, to the history that is taught to the millions of Texas public school children. May we always remember, and always remind our young people, that freedom is never free.Register for Texas Values ‘What is Marriage?’... Read more
