See below for some thoughts from former President Barack Obama, former VP Joe Biden, Virginia Democratic elected officials and candidates on the 19th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. Personally, I was at work (at the U.S. Department of Energy) that day, just 3 miles or so from the Pentagon, and just a few blocks from where the terrorists who hijacked Flight 93 were probably intending to go…the U.S. Capitol. Meanwhile, my wife was heading in to work, just a couple blocks from the White House, just as thousands of people were turning around and heading OUT of the city. A terrifying, deeply disturbing day all around, one we’ll never forget, of course.

P.S. By the way, if you ever have a chance to visit “Ground Zero,” I found it to be a very powerful, moving experience back on the 11th anniversary
