“It was a genuine privilege to attend and participate in this year’s 9/11 ceremony. Sharing a moment of remembrance with some of Michigan’s first responders and military members is an opportunity I take to heart. This annual commemoration is a chance to honor those who lost their lives during the attacks on September 11, 2001. It is also a time to stop and reflect and give gratitude to the people who put their lives on the line every day to ensure we are all safe.” — Speaker Joe Tate
