WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released the following statement in remembrance of the lives lost 21 years ago from the September 11th terrorist attacks.
“Today, on the somber anniversary of the most horrific terrorist attack in the history of the United States, I stand with millions of Americans in memory of the nearly 3,000 lives lost. We must never forget the victims of the acts of hate and mass murder committed that day by radical Islamic terrorists. On this day, 21 years later, let us remember not only the act of evil, and the lives lost, but also the unity of our country as we resolved to stand together in the face of adversity, as one nation.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our servicemen and women, first responders, and other Americans who answered the call of duty to defend our great nation in the wake of those attacks. It is because of your courageous sacrifices that our country remains a beacon of hope and freedom to this day. I will never forget. We will never forget. May God bless our men and women in uniform, and may God bless the United States of America.
