RECOGNIZING SEPTEMBER 11 AS A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE -- (House of Representatives - September 10, 2007)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BACA. Mr. Speaker, on the morning of September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 innocent men, women, and children were murdered when Islamic terrorists hijacked and crashed four civilian aircraft.

This resolution recognizes September 11 as both a day to remember those taken from their families and loved ones--and a day for Americans to recommit to the nation and to each other.

We pay tribute to the heroic service, actions, and sacrifices of first responders, law enforcement personnel, state and local officials, volunteers, and others who aided the innocent victims and bravely risked their own lives and health.

And we rise to give thanks to the foreign leaders and citizens of all nations who have assisted and continue to stand in solidarity with the United States against terrorism in the aftermath of these terrible attacks.

Mr. Speaker, we will never forget those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

The House remains committed to defeating terrorists and their supporters who threaten the United States and to providing our armed forces with the resources and support to do so effectively and safely.

Let us honor the victims of 9/11, and reaffirm our commitment to defending America from those who would do us harm.
