WESTMORELAND – Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) issued the following statement as we reflect on the 22nd Anniversary of September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America.
“Twenty-Two years ago today, the United States of America faced one of its most gut-wrenching moments in our history with the terrorist attacks on our country’s soil. We must never forget what happened that day. It not only changed our nation, but also our Commonwealth. Within an hour of the Twin Towers collapsing, a small town in rural Pennsylvania, Shanksville, became a household name around the globe. It is important to honor all who protected our nation that day. I am forever grateful for the first responders and ordinary heroes from across our state, and from the communities I serve, that were there to respond. Let’s honor our local heroes by taking a moment to remember the 3,000 lives lost. We are a resilient nation. Even on America’s toughest days, we are still the greatest nation in the world.”
