Today We Remember September 11, 2001

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. ADERHOLT. Mr. Speaker, it has been eleven years and we shall never forget the impact that September 11, 2001 made on every American.

Today, eleven years since tragedy struck the shores of America at the hands of Osama bin Laden and his followers, we should all pause for a moment and reflect upon not only the solemness of this day, but also the strength of American ideals to overcome adversity and persevere.

Today, we should all remember the thousands of people needlessly murdered in New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia on that faithful day; the brave first responders who rushed into harm's way without concern for the consequences; the thousands of brave men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the course of the war of terror; and the thousands of security, intelligence, and law enforcement officials that continue to work tirelessly to keep our Nation safe and secure.
