Congresswoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement from her office in Washington this morning:
"Eleven years ago, on a Tuesday morning much like today, our nation was tested by the barbaric acts of terrorists seeking to destroy the peace and security of a free society. In those moments, amid the chaos and confusion, the true spirit of America was awakened as we watched firemen, police officers, and ordinary citizens transform into true American heroes."
"Through God's grace, we remain united, prayerful, and strong eleven years later in the face of threats to our nation and the security of future generations. We must remain vigilant and strong to protect the freedoms we hold dear and never forget the sacrifices made to protect them. We continue to rebuild, we remain united, and we will never forget."
