Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) issued the following statement today marking the eleventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001:
"The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 mark one of the worst days in American history. As we honor the victims and continue to pray for their families, we also remember the hope, unity, and sense of purpose which brought us together as a nation. In our darkest hour we found our greatest strength.
"We also mark this anniversary by remembering the many Americans and Nebraskans who have risked and given their lives in defense of our freedom. May we never forget or take for granted their service."
