Bill Owens, endorsed Democratic Congressional candidate in New York's 23rd district, issued the following statement on the anniversary of September 11th:
"I join all Americans today to pause and remember the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. We will never forget the courage New York's first responders displayed that morning when they bravely answered the nation's call for help, and we will forever keep the memory of those who died in the attacks on that fateful day."
"As a veteran, our troops across the globe as well as the first responders who answered the call of duty on that tragic morning are in my thoughts and prayers today. Our country is forever indebted for their service and their courage. As a result, we must honor their valor with a commitment to care for them once they return home."
"On this day of remembrance, I am grateful for our troops as well as our first responders and their families who have sacrificed so much for our country."
