Rep. Zeldin Statement on the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks
PATCHOGUE, NY - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and a United States Army veteran, released the following statement in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:
“The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 forever changed our lives, our nation and the world. We all remember exactly where we were, what we were doing, and the emotions of devastation, anger, resolve, uncertainty and unity we felt. As time passes, pain eases, and more and more Americans are either too young to remember or were not yet born, we cannot allow the memories to fade or fail to honor the ordinary Americans who became extraordinary heroes on that September morning and in the years that followed.
“We owe it to the victims, their families, and all those who acted heroically in the days, weeks, months and years following the attacks to Never Forget the tragedy of that day, as well as the acts of selflessness and sacrifice that followed, which embody the very best of the American spirit.”
