Congressman Gregory W. Meeks (NY-6), released the following statement regarding the anniversary of 9/11:
On the 11th anniversary of 9/11 we remember those Americans who lost their lives, their families, and the courageous efforts of first responders and volunteers. As a New Yorker, this tragedy resonates strongly with me and my constituents but we must not forget the resilience of the American people. Today, the new World Trade Center is almost completely rebuilt as one of the tallest buildings in America, the leader of Al Qaeda and other top members have been brought to justice, and Americans proudly unite to honor the legacy of the victims.
We thank our troops, past and present, who protect our country and promote American values of democracy and freedom at home and abroad.
