Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ 07) today released the following statement on the twelfth anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2011:
"On this day we remember the innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001. In the twelve years that have followed, families and communities have worked to honor their memories, support loved ones and tell the next generation of the great sacrifices that so many have made.
"May God bless all of those who died on September 11th and their families, those who bravely responded to the tragedy and those who have ever put on the Nation's uniform to serve and protect us from the dangers we have faced and continue to face.
"And, finally, solemnly, and prayerfully, we beseech almighty God to continue to bless our beloved country, the United States of America."
