OBAMA PRESIDENCY & THE 112TH CONGRESS:
POLITICAL QUOTES & SPEECHES
Tonight, I joined fellow members of Congress on the steps of the Capitol in honor of Americans who lost their lives in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. We will ‘never forget.’
Tonight, Members of Congress gathered on the Capitol steps for a Congressional Remembrance Ceremony observing the 10th anniversary of September 11th. We remember the heroes of 9/11 – the courage of our firefighters, police officers, and first responders sifting through the rubble at Ground Zero; the bravery of those who ran to rescue those in danger, who searched for survivors, who risked their own lives to save others. For the families, friends, and loved ones of those who died on 9/11, we hope these last ten years have diminished their pain and grief. But we know that time will never diminish our memory of the Americans we lost that day. The tragedy of September 11, 2001, will forever be emblazoned in the hearts, minds, and character of America.
