Today our nation marks the solemn anniversary of September 11, 2001. We will never forget the loved ones our nation lost that tragic day. We carry them with us in our daily lives, in our decision-making, and in our thoughts. We will remember, forever, the sacrifices made by so many.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement marking the 14th anniversary of September 11, 2001:

“Today our nation marks the solemn anniversary of September 11, 2001. We will never forget the loved ones our nation lost that tragic day. We carry them with us in our daily lives, in our decision-making, and in our thoughts. We will remember, forever, the sacrifices made by so many.

“But just as time has healed some of that day’s wounds, it has also granted us the wisdom to see the strength of our nation. Out of great tragedy, we have learned much, and grown enormously. Our nation’s resilience was tested that day – but we banded together around families who lost loved ones; first responders who required aid; and our brave men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces. Out of that darkness, we found light.

“I thank all those who are marking today’s anniversary by participating in the National Day of Service and Remembrance, and most of all, I thank those who put themselves in harm’s way each and every day on behalf of our nation and its freedoms.

“As we say in my faith tradition, those loved ones, heroes and heroines we lost on that day, may their memory be but a blessing.”
