McMorris Rodgers’ Statement on the 6th Anniversary of September 11th

(Washington, D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers released the following statement today to mark the six-year anniversary of September 11th:

“September 11th will always be a solemn reminder of the thousands of innocent lives lost and the day that our country was forever changed. Let us never forget the victims of this senseless attack, the first-responders who heroically risked their lives, and the community that came together to demonstrate the compassion of the human spirit.

“There still exist those groups and people who want to destroy our country and the way we live. We must stand firm in our resolve to defeat terrorists and promote freedom around the world.

“Today is also a day to show support for the brave men and women who are serving in our U.S. military. I believe the top priority of our country should be to ensure the security of its people, and our troops have answered the call of duty. They are the defenders of freedom and have shown a willingness to sacrifice it all for the greater good of our country. I especially want to recognize the men and women at Fairchild Air Force Base who have played a large role in the Global War on Terror and remind them of the positive difference they are making in the world.”
