Knowing this, we have a duty to prepare our-selves to defend not only our lives and those of our children, not only our beloved country, not only our freedoms, but civilization itself.
Hon. Henry J. Hyde
All three of these gentlemen, Mr. Speaker, have been in the forefront of
focusing on the foreign policy of the United States. All three have focused on the extension of liberty and justice and freedom throughout this world.
The fire of freedom, Mr. Speaker, forged the American character and it burns deep within our souls. The ashes of tragedy have rekindled that spirit; and 1 year later, the world must know freedom’s light still burns brightly and its eternal truth shall never, never be extinguished. May God, Mr. Speaker, continue to bless and guide America as we continue our commitment to a just Nation and the defense and extension of freedom.
Hon. Steny H. Hoyer

More still needs to be done; but as we move forward, we have an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to do all we can to work together to preserve the memory of those who perished in making our Nation a better place, a safer place and to ensure that the spirit of freedom, democracy and our core American values continue to burn even brighter in our Nation and around the world.
-Hon. Saxby Chambliss [R]
This bond provides hope that our Nation will heal from our grief and conquer those who would threaten our liberty and our way of life.

Throughout America we join together as a community in solidarity to make it clear to the world that our Nation is united and resolved to defend freedom against all enemies, any enemies. We may be Democrats or Republicans, conservatives or liberals.

We will continue to lead this Nation and world that we love,
