WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Congressman Bob Gibbs released the following statement regarding the 12th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

“It is hard to believe that it has now been over a decade since the horrific 9/11 terrorist attacks shook our nation and altered the lives many forever.  As we reflect on this day, it is important for each of us as Americans to pay our respect to those we lost and those who have sacrificed so much to keep our country safe. The true American spirit was exemplified that day as many selfless Americans rose to the occasion to help those who were in harm’s way, along with the brave men and women in uniform who were among the first to fight.

“This September 11th let’s all take a moment to remember those we lost on this day twelve years ago and express our gratitude to those first responders and members of the military who have dedicated their lives to our country’s safety. ”
