Manchin Statement on 12th Anniversary of September 11

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement on the twelfth anniversary of September 11th.

“A dozen years later, the memories of 9/11 are still very real for Americans – the terrible images of the Towers falling, the Pentagon in flames and the smoldering field in rural Pennsylvania. It was a day when all Americans shared a terrible tragedy. But it was also a day that united us as never before. And as much as it changed our country, it also showed how much in America never changes – our desire to keep our families safe and our country strong. These are the ideals that truly bind us together as a nation. And with God’s blessings, it will always be so.”
