Rep. Fleischmann Remembers Sept. 11, 2001

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann released the following statement on the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks:

"Eighteen years ago today, our nation fell victim to an unthinkable act of terrorism – one that stole the lives of thousands of Americans.

"This vile act took the lives of mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, friends and neighbors. Eighteen years later, we mourn with those who are still healing.

"On Sept. 11, 2001 our nation was shaken but not broken. While we lost much on that day, we did not lose our character as a country.

"Brave first responders risked their lives for their fellow Americans, their heroism forever remembered. Since then, millions more have answered the call to serve to defend our flag and the freedoms we hold dear.

"Out of the rubble of tragedy, Americans stood united. On Sept. 12 the sun rose again, and our nation still stood - a beacon of freedom. We will never forget Sept. 11, 2001 and the strength of our nation in the days to follow; the strength that we see today and every day.

"The strength, courage, and most of all, patriotism that makes us proud to be American.

"We will never forget Sept. 11, 2001.”
