Cotton Statement on September 11th

September 11, 2018

Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:

"September 11 is a solemn anniversary, because 17 years later, we still remember the pain of that day. But just as we mourn all the innocent lives lost, we also remember the heroism of our first responders, who rushed to the aid of their fellow Americans. Out of the ashes of a terrible tragedy arose a strength and unity that the whole world came to admire. We must never forget the resolve we showed that day, nor the people who have fought in uniform since then to keep us safe. It is this heartfelt gratitude for freedom and its guardians, after all, that represents the true spirit of 9/11."
