Jan 04, 2009

(Washington, D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris issued the following statement in honor of the four-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:

“Each year at this time, we come together to remember those who lost their lives in a senseless act of terror committed on our soil. For thousands of Americans, the victims of September 11 were our neighbors and our friends. Many experienced a direct loss of a loved one, and together we all share in their grief. “


“As we reflect on September 11, our hearts and prayers go out to all those who lost family members and loved ones. Their absence continues to be felt – not just on anniversaries but daily. We also express gratitude to the many heroes who selflessly gave their lives to preserve others. As our men and women in uniform confront terrorism on all corners of the globe, we are grateful for their sacrifices that help secure our freedom here at home.”
