As we reflect on today, I’ll never forget how the country came together after 9/11. As tragic as that awful day was, what came next was truly incredible. Everyone stood united and it made me extremely proud to be an American. 📷: Melissa Williams. pic.twitter.com/GNDS9kPtsF— Cory Texter (@CoryTexter) September 11, 2020
