King Statement on the 18th Anniversary of September 11th Attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) released the following statement in recognition of the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks:

“Eighteen years after terror struck our nation – as the first generation of Americans who were not alive at the time of these attacks comes of age – it is more important than ever to ensure that we fulfill our collective promise to ‘never forget,’” said Senator King. “We must remember the thousands we lost in these vicious attacks; remember the bravery of the first responders who put others before themselves; and remember the abiding American values that shone through in one of our darkest moments. In the face of hate and fear, Americans responded with love and compassion, tolerance and bravery – we knew then and know now that much more unites us than divides us. Today, we take a moment to honor the memories of those we’ve lost, share their stories with our children, and, in their honor, rededicate ourselves to the shared values of our nation.”
