Manchin Statement on 14th Anniversary of September 11

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

“Fourteen years later, the memories of 9/11 are still very real for us as a nation. Each and every one of us can remember exactly where we were when we first learned that our country was under attack. It was a day when all Americans shared a terrible tragedy. But that day, even as we experienced the grief of great loss and the shock of vulnerability, our country learned of the great strength and character of our first responders, and service men and women.  On this anniversary, may we all pause and remember the tragic events of that day, grieve for the thousands of innocent Americans who lost their lives, honor the courageous heroes who sacrificed it all to preserve our freedoms, and in the spirit of American unity, may we also recommit to serving our neighbors, our communities and our nation. May God bless America.”
