Congressman Pitts Marks Fifth Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks
Washington - Congressman Joe Pitts (R, PA-16) issued the following statement today commemorating the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on America.
"Today we remember the nearly 3,000 innocent Americans who lost their lives in the attacks of September 11, 2001. Though it's now been five years since that horrible day, we continue to mourn their loss and pray for the loved ones they left behind.
"The memories of that day, though painful, serve as a stark reminder of the terrorist threat that we continue to face today. As we commemorate our nation's great loss, we must also renew our commitment to defeating the forces of evil that seek our destruction. Defeating terrorism is a difficult job, but today we are reminded of why it must be done."
Congressman Pitts will participate in the Oxford Freedom Walk today at 6 p.m. The walk is open to the public and will begin at 233 S. 3rd St. in Oxford and proceed north to Oxford Memorial Park.
