TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement today, the fourteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks:
“Today we honor the memory of those whose lives were lost to all of us fourteen years ago. The wounds may never be fully healed for their families, loved ones, coworkers and friends, but they will forever be remembered for their courage and sacrifice in the face of fatal danger.
“The firefighters, police officers, first responders, military members and civilians who gave their lives became an inspiration to the Nation. They serve as a constant reminder of both the resilience of our country and our strength when we are unified. To this day, there are thousands of men and women working in service to our country protecting us from continued threats who deserve our gratitude. Today, we give our thanks to them and for the freedoms they are serving to preserve.”
