Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) released the following statement in remembrance of September 11, 2001.
"We must always remember and never forget those who perished on September 11, 2001. As we stand together to mourn their loss, let us also honor the brave men and women who faced the flames to rescue the wounded, the helpless, and all those in danger. We will never forget them, nor those we have lost since in the struggle for freedom and liberty.
"On this day of remembrance, we cannot, we must not, forget that this fight is not over. We, the living, must rededicate ourselves to the great task before us: to ensure that our nation forever remains that shining city on a hill, a beacon of freedom to all those who still live in tyranny and darkness."
