STATEMENT FROM SENATOR YOUNG ON 10th ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11

“Looking back and remembering the horrible events of 9/11, it is hard to believe that it was only 10 years ago when our country came under attack by terrorists who brought hate and death from the skies.

The memories and emotions from that day are so easy to go back to. The images of planes disappearing into the Twin Towers, of smoke clouds rolling down the streets of lower Manhattan, of photos hung by family members of their missing, all are permanently etched into our memories and will never be erased.

Like most Americans, I also remember the way people all across the nation, regardless of creed or race, joined in their support of the nearly 3,000 people who perished and to those who lost their loved ones.
