As we celebrate our Reconsideration of the American Dream conference this week, let us not forget that 15 years ago — September 11, 2001 – our nation endured the worst terrorist attack in American history.

Americans persevered through this unimaginable tragedy.  Our reflections on the American Dream should look forward to an era of peace but also honor the memories of those lost.
