September 11: A Day to Remember

Sep 11, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) released the following statement in observance of September 11.

“Twelve years after the attacks of 2001, September 11 has become a day of remembrance, a day of reflection, and a day of service.  We still feel the loss of the 3,000 men, women, and children who were killed that day, and we are still inspired by the bravery of the first responders who sacrificed themselves so that others might live. 

“Today, I am praying for the families and friends of those we’ve lost, and sending my gratitude to the brave men and women in uniform who protect and defend us every day—both at home and abroad. 

“This anniversary is especially difficult, since it also marks one year since our consulate in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.  In their memory, the House of Representatives continues to seek information on that tragic night so we can give their families and the American people the answers they deserve. 

“Today is not just a day of remembrance, however.  It is a time to look to the future with hope and confidence.  America is a nation founded on liberty and equality, and we place a high value every human life.  I believe that these principles are stronger than the hatred of any terrorist, and that the pursuit of freedom will always win out over those who try to defeat us.”
