"It's 15 years old now, so there are kids now in high school that didn't experience 9/11. That in itself is interesting because, as you know, people have short memories. I use this occasionally: Complacency, I think, breeds vulnerability. So to become complacent, say 'you know, that was a tragic event the likes of something that we'll never see again,' I just, you know, I want to make sure that we continue to honor the folks that lost their lives that day — whether it be civilian, fire department, police department, whatever — to keep it fresh in everybody's memories because I don't want people to get complacent about it because any given day, any given time, anywhere it can happen again and I really don't want to see that anywhere again. That's a tragedy of the like that I don't know any of us could ever imagine. … I think it's important to remember, to commemorate, so that we don't forget. And that's one of the biggest fears that I have, that we'll forget how tragic that was."
