Dr. Bucshon Comments on 9/11 Anniversary
Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon issued the following statement commemorating the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:
"Today we remember the American lives lost on that unforgettable day thirteen years ago. We all join together in saying a prayer for the memory of those we lost and their families. We honor the first responders who ran into the flames to save their fellow citizens, the brave men and women who charged that cockpit over Pennsylvania, and the heroes who have since answered the call of duty, sacrificing everything so that others may be free. Together, we demonstrated the incredible resilience of the American spirit and the resolve of our people.
"While the smoke and debris may have long since cleared, the threat of terrorism around the world still exists. We must be vigilant and we must stand tall. America remains the leader of the free world and we will stop at nothing to defeat those who threaten the promise of freedom."
