Text: "Thanks and Remembrance: As the United States marks the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, in the name of all Americans, we thank the people of Calgary for their support and generosity following the tragic events of that day. The Calgary International Airport received 2160 diverted passengers unable to land at their U.S. destinations that day. You opened not only your airport, but also your homes and hearts and gave food, shelter, medical attention and hope to Americans in their time of need. The nearly 3000 innocent victims on September 11, 2001, included 24 Canadians, our friends and family. Canadians were with us in our darkest hour, as you always are. Neither terrorists nor any adversity can conquer free peoples. And we are grateful to stand with the best neighbors any nation ever had. As together we look back, together we go forward. We are eternally grateful. September 11, 2011."
