“September 11th is a day of reflection -- a day of overwhelming emotion and sadness. Spending time today with families who have lost children, spouses, siblings -- is a reminder of how precious our time is with the ones we love. Every minute is one to be cherished and valued." 

"The stories of heroic acts that ordinary people took in the face of fear and terror are humbling. In the City of Boston, our police department remains vigilant, and we know that policing in the City has changed since September 11th. Our world changed on September 11th." 

“Today I’ve seen how grief and loss can result in hope. God bless our City, our first responders, and our country."
