Tomorrow marks the eleventh anniversary of September 11th, 2001. The following is a statement from Representative Bruce Braley (IA-01) in remembrance of those who lost their lives and for those who survived them.
"September 11th, 2001, was a horrible day that left a hole in this country's heart that can never be filled. That day the United States lost many innocent people including native Iowans Tim Haviland, Michael Tinley, and Karen Kincaid-Batacan, but today we remember them in the lives they lived, and the people whose lives they touched.
"My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one, and to all of the service men and women who are fighting for peace and for our country overseas.
"We will never forget September 11th, and we will strive to make this country stronger and safer for those who lost so much."
