Newt Gingrich released the following statement on the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks:
Today's solemn anniversary is an opportunity to remember the many lives cut short by evil on that day and reflect upon the selfless courage of all those who responded to the attack on our country. We remember our brave firefighters, police, and other first responders. We remember the passengers of Flight 93. And we remember the men and women of our Armed Forces who continue the work of defending America. We are a heroic people. And while much work still remains to defeat the evil that attacked us that day, the American spirit remains strong, resilient, and determined to ensure the light of liberty is never extinguished, but grows brighter every day. God bless America.
