On This Somber Day, We Stand Tall For Peace And Freedom

Mitt Romney | September 11, 2012

Eleven years ago, evil descended upon our country, taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable attack against innocents. America will never forget those who perished.  America will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind. And America shall remain ever vigilant against those who would do us harm. Today we again extend our most profound gratitude to our brave troops who have gone into battle, some never to return, so that we may live in peace. On this most somber day, those who would attack us should know that we are united, one nation under God, in our determination to stop them and to stand tall for peace and freedom at home and across the world.


Statement from Wendy Long:

“On September 11, 2001 America was attacked, not for what we do wrong – but for what we do right.  We were attacked by those who despise the freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution; freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble, and the freedom to petition our government. Eleven years later, young American men and women are fighting and dying to protect those freedoms around the world. Today, as we remember the heroes lost on September 11, 2001, let us pause to reflect on those freedoms and honor those who have died in its name and those who protect them today.”

– U.S. Senate Candidate Wendy Long, R-NY


Statement from Congressman Tom Reed on the 11th Anniversary of the September 11 Attacks

“Millions of Americans will pause today as we solemnly recall September 11. We will never forget the bravery and selfless sacrifice that occurred both on that day and in the days that immediately followed.  We must always honor all of the civilians, emergency responders and those in our military who fell the day of those horrific attacks and in the years which have passed since then. As we do so, we might also reflect upon our American way of life; our democracy which stands for freedom and our firm belief that people can govern themselves through free exchange of ideas and respect for one another.  We do not bend to those who rule by repression, violence and fear, and that will never change.”

NY GOP: Remembering 9/11, Eleven Years Later

Today, at formal ceremonies and in private moments across our Nation, Americans will pause to remember the tragic events of a beautiful September morning eleven years ago when four planes were hijacked and used in attacks against the Unites States.

Today we remember the 2,977 innocent lives that were taken on September 11, 2001.

Today we remember the Police Officers, and other First Responders who ran into the burning Twin Towers to save people they had never met.

Today we remember the brave men and women, uniformed and civilian, whose lives were lost performing their duties at the Pentagon.

Today we remember the passengers of United 93, who saved lives on the ground and perhaps the White House or Capitol Building: their individual and collective acts of heroism will never be forgotten.

Today we recognize all of the men and women of our armed forces and their families for the sacrifices they have made and continue to make defending our freedom and this great country.

We will never forget the mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who never made it home that day, innocent victims of a hateful and barbaric attack on our country.

To all of the families of those who have perished, you are in our thoughts and prayers always, but especially on this difficult day.

God Bless the United States of America.

911 we remember
