FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 11, 2012
As we recall the tragic events that forever changed our country eleven years ago today, let us also recall the unyielding unity that this day instilled in our country -- we became a country unified with the solace of knowing that we were all the same.
As time has passed, the events of 9/11 continue to inspire courage and to reinvigorate the American spirit. We must never forget the bravery, sacrifice and loss that we witnessed eleven years ago and in the years since, on battlefields around the world. Let us never forget that our country is stronger when we all work together.
Please join me in remembrance of the innocent lives lost and those lives that have been forever changed as a result of the tragic attacks on 9/11. Today, we honor and pay tribute to our firefighters, paramedics, peace officers and military personnel who dedicate their lives to helping others and who put themselves in harm's way to protect our nation.
Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa
