Press Releases

Today, Congressman Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement on the eleventh Anniversary of the September 11th, 2011 terrorist attacks:

“On the eleventh Anniversary of September 11th, we remember those proud Americans we lost – men and women simply going to work to make America great, on their way to visit loved ones, or rushing to the aid of others. Our hearts are with the thousands of families who often relive those painful moments and with the brave men and women of our U.S. Armed Forces, security personnel, and law enforcement community at their stations around the world to prevent such an attack from ever happening again. We will never forget the nearly 3000 victims who lost their lives as a result of these cowardly terrorist attacks.

“As we come together as Americans, we also remember the strength and unity of our nation that was so prevalent following this day. Our country rose up in the midst of disaster, steeled our spirits, and has withstood this test of our resolve. I encourage you today to take pride in America and to remember that we are fortunate to live in this blessed country.”
