Thune Statement on 13th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Senator John Thune (R-South Dakota), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement on the 13th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks:

“While it’s been 13 years since the deadly terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93, the memories of 9/11 remain strong today. Attacks designed to shake the American spirit were met by an unmatched sense of pride, courage, and hope. Selfless first responders ran toward the chaos to protect innocent Americans from harm, and in the face of danger, citizen heroes rushed to aid those in need. Today America remembers the sacrifices made on 9/11, the lives lost, and the challenges that were overcome. America will never forget.”
