WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement today to commemorate the 13th Anniversary of 9/11:

“Thirteen years ago, a sharp pain was brought upon our homeland and changed us forever. We continue to remember the bravery of all our heroes: from the first responders, to our service members, to the strength of the everyday American. We remember the lives that were lost and our thoughts and prayers go to the families and communities who have suffered.”

“The American people are fighters and instead of cowering in fear our nation stood strong and bound together. History has shown that if anyone on the face of God’s green earth can overcome challenges, it is us. As we endure combating global threats to Democracy, it is important for us to continue to stand together as a nation.

“Today, hold your family and friends close as we reflect on the experiences surrounding and following 9/11. As our great nation pushes forward, we stand by our service members, veterans, police, firefighters, and first responders both now and into the future.”
