WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today issued the following statement in commemoration of the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001:
“It is hard to believe so many years have passed since the tragic events of 9/11, since the sadness and loss are so fresh for many across our region, the Commonwealth and nation.
“The attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania stand as the most cowardly and senseless acts of terrorism ever perpetrated against the United States and its citizens.
“My family and I continue to solemnly offer our thoughts and prayers for all those who were impacted that day. We also salute those who came to aid, those who rushed into the World Trade Center before the towers fell, the first responders at the Pentagon and the passengers who made the ultimate sacrifice, downing United Flight 93 in Somerset County before it could reach its intended destination.
“These heroes truly embody the undying resolve of the American people and their actions will never be forgotten.”
