Quote of the Day

“In closing, I would like to thank the American Veterans Center for acknowledging Rick with a special award. He would be very proud of this and especially proud since it comes from the veterans, his warrior brothers. Thank you, and God bless you. And please just remember that the most profound thing that people told me after 9/11 was that Rick was telling people, ‘Today is a day to be proud to be an American because tomorrow the world will looking at you.’ The world is looking at us. Thank you.”

-Susan Rescorla while accepting the Edward J. Herlihy Citizenship Award in honor of her late husband Colonel Rick Rescorla at the American Veterans Center’s 2008 Banquet. Col. Rescorla is credited with saving the lives of nearly 3,000 people on 9/11. Read more about Col. Rescorla here.
