Sep 11, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States:
“Today, we remember the horrific, terrorist attacks that struck our country 20 years ago on September 11, 2001. As we somberly reflect on that day and its impact on the years that have followed, we recall the bravery of our first responders, the heroism of those on Flight 93 who helped avert a greater disaster, and the countless Americans who helped us recover in the immediate aftermath of that day. We came together, a nation injured but unbroken, with newfound resolve to protect and uplift what the terrorists sought to destroy.
“Our thoughts and prayers must turn to the victims who lost their lives on that day and the sacrifices of a multitude of servicemembers who sought to punish those who attacked us in the years that followed.
“The 9/11 terrorist attacks were an expression of the worst of humanity that, nonetheless, reminded us of what is best about our country – liberty, equality, and fraternity. In these trying times – no matter what our differences may be – those ideals bind us together, make us stronger, and are the best way in which we can honor those who perished.”
