OLEAN – “The attacks of September 11, 2001 were meant to devastate our country. Yet, despite their horrific nature, Americans have continued to show resolve as a Nation and as a People. Fear and violence could not, and will not, overcome freedom and liberty,” said Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I-Olean).

“Today, we share in the sorrows of families who lost loved ones that day. We remember the bravery of emergency responders who entered burning buildings. We recognize the efforts of everyday people who helped complete strangers. We honor those who fought back against their attackers to keep others safe from harm. We continue to hold our military service members in highest esteem for their sacrifices in the cause of freedom,” she added.

“We will remember,” said Senator Young.
