CRAMER: Statement Remembering the Victims of September 11, 2001
WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement in remembrance of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001:
“On this day 16 years ago, America witnessed one of the most tragic events in our nation’s history. The evil and hatred displayed changed us forever, and terrorists believed we would cower in fear at the horrible atrocities committed by them. They were wrong. Where they believed America was weak, we showed strength. Where they believed Americans would run from catastrophe, heroes ran toward it. Where they believed Americans would splinter apart, we forged a deeper love and bond with our fellow neighbors than ever seen before.
Those who lost their lives that terrible day will always be remembered, but their lives were not lost in vain. Through our will, compassion, and steadfast love for everything that is the United States of America, we will always send a message to evil around the world that you will not hurt us, you will not break us, and you will never destroy the God-given rights every individual has to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
