U.S. Representative Judy Biggert (R-IL-13th) today issued the following statement in remembrance of 9/11:
"Today, we come together to honor the lives of those we lost on that fateful day eleven years ago. Our memories of them will never fade. Nor will the determination and resiliency of the American people. Every day, American soldiers are fighting for our freedoms, while firefighters and emergency personnel here at home put their lives on the line for our safety -- just as their colleagues did on 9/11. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims on this somber anniversary, and our deep gratitude is with those who continue to risk everything to keep us safe."
