Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) released the following statement to commemorate the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:
"Today and every day we remember the attacks on American soil that fateful September day. Eleven years later, the American people continue to come together to remember the friends, family and neighbors we lost. They are heroes and will never be forgotten.
"We also honor those who answered the call since then to serve in America's armed forces as we defend freedom and liberty both at home and abroad. While political differences often divide us, we must never forget what binds us together -- we are all sons and daughters of the United States of America, the greatest country the world has ever known."
