Senator David Perdue Statement Commemorating All 9/11 Victims

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement to commemorate Patriot Day and honor all of the 9/11 victims: 

“Today, our nation unites in solemn reflection on the anniversary of two terrible tragedies to honor the Americans we lost at home and in Benghazi, Libya. Both of these tragic events serve to remind us to be ever vigilant to the challenges we face every day here and around the world. In all my life, I never thought I would see the day when 19 terrorists motivated by evil would kill nearly 3,000 people on American soil. There are never enough words to heal the wounds inflicted from such loss. However, our country never falters and we must continue to stand together against terrorism and radical extremists and for the values our great nation holds so dear. Today, our focus is on remembering our fallen patriots. I join my fellow Georgians and Americans in lifting up the victims’ families in prayer. May God bless the United States of America.”
