Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) commemorated the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

“Today, at the U.S. Capitol and around the country, our American flag flies at half staff in honor and remembrance of the victims, the heroes, and the families who lost so much on September 11, 2001.  In the 11 years since that tragic morning, the world has changed, but the heroism and courage of the American people has time and again triumphed.  We live in a blessed and strong country in which every citizen owes a special debt of gratitude for the service and sacrifice of the tireless first-responders, brave troops fighting for freedom, and others who fight to protect our national security.”
