Today is 22 years since an act of terrorism shook the world and changed the world forever: 2,977 lives were lost in this atrocity in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Ten Australians were amongst those who lost their lives that day, and today we honour their memory. Our thoughts go to all of their family and friends. Some of course were known to people in this House due to their past professions and relationships, so today will be a difficult day. It's a day as well where the democratic world and all those who uphold human rights and human decency reassert our commitment to continue to fight the scourge of terrorism, to remain vigilant and to make sure that we do so for this and for future generations.
