Kaine Statement On 12th Anniversary Of September 11th Attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today in commemoration of the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001: 

“It’s been twelve years since thousands of lives were lost in New York, Pennsylvania, and Northern Virginia. As we continue to mourn those we lost, we honor their memories and keep their friends and families in our prayers. Today we give thanks for the heroic efforts of first responders who put their lives on the line that day to save others, and our servicemembers who continue to sacrifice in defense of our nation. While I will never forget the terror of that day, I will always remember how people all over the Commonwealth and the nation supported one another and united behind the belief that our best days are still ahead.”
