Remembering the 9/11 Attacks

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. FITZPATRICK. Mr. Speaker, tomorrow our Nation will mark the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. At community gatherings across the country, neighbors will come together to honor the memory of those lost in New York, Pennsylvania, and our Nation's capital, including a ceremony in Bucks County at the 9/11 Garden of Reflection, the official Pennsylvania memorial to the victims of the September 11 attacks.

As I stand before you this evening, I'm reminded of the President's address to the Nation the evening of the attacks. In his remarks to the Nation, the President said that:

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.

Eleven years later, our resolve has never been stronger, and we continue to honor the memory of those tragically lost that day.
