Delgado Announces Statement Commemorating September 11th

Written By Editor on 9/12/21 | 9/12/21

Today, U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) released the following statement on the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania:


“Twenty years ago today, our nation, our way of life, and our freedom was attacked. In a single day, we lost almost 3,000 Americans in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. For two decades, this day has marked loss and pain. But it also reminds us what service, strength, resiliency, and unity really mean.


Twenty years ago, we watched first responders run into fire to save lives. We witnessed passengers on a plane sacrifice themselves in order to stop another attack. In the following weeks and months, we saw our sons and daughters sign up to serve our country, to protect our freedoms and to bring justice to those who attacked our homeland.


We find ourselves today, on the 20th anniversary, a nation in pain. From the coronavirus to devastating floods, to losing 13 brave service members in Afghanistan, to political divisiveness teetering on violence, many of us are struggling. We are collectively overwhelmed with grief. We are fighting to find a purpose in this pain.


And we can win this fight with love.


On this horrific day, 20 years ago, love and duty drove firefighters into the twin towers. Love of country drove our service members and veterans to enlist. Love was the last thing on the minds of those who perished.


Amidst this suffering, this pain -- we must love one another, give love to one another, and we must never forget. We cannot forget the first responders who spent painstaking months sifting through the rubble. We cannot forget our service members who gave their lives to protect our country and our way of life. We cannot forget those who perished in the attacks.


We must make a choice, every single day, to give love and support to those who need it most. We must channel the resilience and unity our nation found 20 years ago. May God bless the souls of the loved ones lost; may God bless their family, friends and neighbors; may God bless our brave service members, veterans, and first responders; and may God bless America.”
