RENO, Nev. — Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says Sept. 11 is a time to renew the resolve of protecting Americans against “evil” attacks.

Romney spoke in Reno, Nev., to a gathering of the National Guard on a day when both presidential campaigns halted, however briefly, their overt politics in deference to one of the most harrowing and unifying days in U.S. history.

Romney said the events of that day are seared in the memory of Americans. He said the families of those killed on Sept. 11, 2001, are remembered and held up in prayer.

Back in Washington, President Barack Obama marked the day by participating in solemn ceremonies at the White House and the Pentagon.
