Gardner Marks 15th Anniversary of September 11th Attacks

Washington, DC Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today released the below statement in advance of the 15th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.

 

“Today, we mourn those who lost their lives fifteen years ago on September 11, 2001. We also commemorate the countless first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice to help others – true American heroes,” said Gardner. “While we still live in a world where terror organizations seek to instill fear in the West, we as Americans stand united as we continue to spread the unalienable rights that make this country so great: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As we honor the victims of the horrific attacks that stunned all of us 15 years ago today, let us also remember that we owe our peace, safety, and the ability to achieve the American dream to the men and women who serve in our military and defend our freedoms so valiantly.”
