Congressman Lucas Statement on the 12th Anniversary of 9/11

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today made the following statement on the 12th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

“It is hard to believe that it has been 12 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks devastated the United States, took the lives of many, and forever altered the lives of loved ones who were left behind,” said Lucas. “We will never forget the many emotions that flooded us when the attacks occurred that day.

“While there was an overwhelming amount of tragedy, suffering and hardship, we also saw our nation unify and work together to make the best out of a tragic situation. On 9/11 there were many first responders, firefighters, policemen, public officials, organizations and volunteers who were proactive and quick to respond to the attacks.

“The way citizens responded to the attacks that day is a true testament of what our great country stands for. Today, it is important that we all take a moment to remember those who lost their lives on this day 12 years ago, and express gratitude to those who provided assistance.

“Additionally, I am extremely grateful to the men and women who work to protect Americans everywhere. It is important that we continue investing in our nation’s defense and equip our men and women in uniform with the resources they need to ensure an attack like 9/11 never happens again.”
