Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) today issued the following statement commemorating the 19th anniversary of September 11, 2001.
“Nearly a generation has passed since the horrifying attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, and yet the memory is still fresh for so many Americans whom history touched on that day. With the rest of the country, I mourn the lives lost in that attack and in the ensuing years, and I send my thoughts to their loved ones. America will never forget the heroism of first responders—or of ordinary citizens who worked together to prevent tragedy and help victims. The anniversary of September 11 is a powerful reminder to us of our capacity to come together in times of loss to comfort, heal, and support one another and this nation.”
