Congressman Dan Lungren (R-Gold River) made the following statement on the anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001:
"On this solemn anniversary we remember the innocent victims who lost their lives in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania. We also remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11 in defense of freedom and America. We are and always will be grateful for their selfless sacrifice.
"On that September morning, 11 years ago, the acts of a common enemy solidified the resolve of our nation and gave birth to a new generation of American heroes. Today let us pause and pray in remembrance of those who fell on 9/11 and for all who continue to stand in harm's way at home and abroad."
