WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement today ahead of the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks:
“Fifteen years ago, our nation suffered the deadliest terrorist attack in our history. We came together in the days that followed united as Americans to recover and rebuild. On the anniversary of that terrible day, we remember those who perished and lend our support to those who lost a spouse, a parent, a child or a friend. We honor our first responders, firefighters, police and EMTs who acted with courage and strength amid such great danger to save so many lives. And we are reminded of the vigilance required of us to fight the evil of terrorism and those who wish to do our nation harm.”
