Larson Statement On 10th Anniversary of September 11th Attacks
HARTFORD, CT – House Democratic Caucus Chairman John B. Larson (CT) released the following statement on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks:
“September 11, 2001 is to a whole generation what December 7, 1941 was to an earlier generation. Ten years later what must be underscored is how during the days, weeks and months following the attack we came together as a nation.
“It was very heartening today to see President Obama and President Bush together. The aftermath of the 9/11 attacks was President Bush’s finest hour - an hour that saw us put labels behind us and come together.
“Today with men and women still serving abroad, the threat of terrorism still very real and a troubling economy at home that has 14 million Americans out of work, we should follow the example of the survivors of 9/11 and the families of the victims who have never forgotten and moved forward in unison.
“We must follow their example and pull together as a country and continue to move forward together.”
